The most important detail is the sun. Since we went to an afternoon game, I strongly suggest buying seats closest to the main gate (gate A). We were opposite this section and had the hot sun in our faces the entire game. As the sun...More

This was my first time here and we really enjoyed it since Oklahoma won. My only complaint would be that they have a big screen on both ends of the field.

Great on site facilities. Army tailgate was well staffed & food was great. Stadium is a bit dated on concessions but it's an historic gift to football. The complex is great & traffic was not bad. Easy to Uber here & there in Dallas.

The game was fantastic. The staff at the game, the gate, event staff were really nice and polite. This was my first trip to the Cotton Bowl and I do plan on returning.
