Lights are a welcome Cotton Bowl addition
By David Ubben
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Both teams have arrived and are warming up on the field without pads.
That's nothing new.
The roof is closed and the end zone entrances are closed as well, but you can tell the sun has gone down in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and the Cotton Bowl has yet to kick off.
That's definitely new.
For the first time in the 75-year history of the Cotton Bowl, the game has moved to primetime, and the game couldn't ask for a better matchup, with a pair of top-20 teams that combined for 19 wins in 2010.
We're still a little more than an hour away from kickoff, but keep it here throughout the night. We'll have plenty more.
