Cotton Bowl Tickets At A Three-Year Low


The Cotton Bowl is one of the most prestigious bowl games there is in the country despite not being a BCS game. Since 2010 the Cotton Bowl has been played at AT&T Stadium home of the Dallas Cowboys and in that time Cotton Bowl tickets have gone for an average price of $324 to go to the game with an average attendance of 82,356. This year’s Cotton Bowl will feature the Oklahoma State from the Big 12 and the Missouri Tigers out the SEC for this January 3rd game between former conference rivals with tickets going for an average of $163.

Going into the last week of the season the Oklahoma State Cowboys were in first place in the Big 12 and only needed a victory of their instate rivals Oklahoma to secure a trip to the BCS but as fate would have it they ended up losing 33-24. That loss allowed for Baylor to back their way into the Fiesta Bowl putting the Cowboys in the Cotton Bowl against the Missouri Tigers.  Oklahoma State has been able to score in bunches this season as they are averaging 41 points per game since Clint Chelf took over responsibility under center for the last seven games.

This time a season ago the Missouri Tigers were one of the worst teams in the SEC only winning two conference games, however a lot can change in a year. This season Mizzou went 7-1 in SEC play only losing in double overtime to South Carolina with their backup quarterback making it all the way to the SEC Championship game where they played Auburn in one of the highest scoring SEC Championship games in history before ultimately losing 59-42.

This years Cotton Bowl is one of the most affordable in years with tickets averaging $163, the cheapest since 2010 where coincidentally Oklahoma State was also in this bowl where they played Ole Miss. Currently there are over 18,000 seats still available which has made some tickets priced very low with fans being able to get in for as little as $36.
