The Goodyear Cotton Bowl is one of college football’s must illustrious and storied bowl games; one that’s been held annually in the state of Texas since 1937. It serves as one of the “New Year’s Six” bowl games in the College Football Playoff, and in recent years like 2015 and 2018 hosted the semifinal game to determine who would go on to play in the College Football Playoff Championship game. The game will be hosted by AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys.
This year’s contest — to be held on Saturday, December 28th — will feature a matchup between the Penn State Nittany Lions, who finished in second place in the Big 10 East and ranked #10 in the country, against the Memphis Tigers, who won the AAC Conference championship and finished their regular season ranked 17th in the nation.

Cotton Bowl Seating Chart – Seat Numbers
The AT&T Stadium seat numbers go from right to left when looking at the field from your seats. This means the right side of the section (when facing the field) will start with seat number 1 and work its way up to seat number 20 to 30 depending on the section and row. This also means that seat number 1 will always be on the aisle next to the adjacent section with the lower section number in AT&T Stadium.
Cotton Bowl Club Seating
AT&T Stadium offers 3 different levels of club level seating. The Hall of Fame Club seats are located in the 100 level along the sideline, and are prefixed with a C before the section number. The main club seats make up the 200 level, and mezzanine club seats make up the 300 level. Regardless of which club level you sit in, you will have access to the same lounges and amenities, which include wider cushioned seats and access to upscale food and drink.
Best Seats for the Cotton Bowl
The best seats for a football game at AT&T Stadium are located in any of the club level seats closest to 50 yard line. Many Cowboy fans will tell you that the 200 level club seats are best, since you have plenty of height to see the entire field, and are also far enough back to have a full view of the giant video board.
