The Cotton Bowl is a United States college football game played annually since 1937 in Dallas, Texas. The game is currently sponsored by SBC and is officially called the SBC Cotton Bowl. It has previously been known as the Mobil Cotton Bowl and the Southwestern Bell Cotton Bowl.

For 40 years the champion of the now-defunct Southwest Conference played as the home team in the Cotton Bowl. When the conference folded in 1996, the bowl lost much of its stature. It now matches teams from the Big Twelve Conference and Southeastern Conference.
