Cotton Bowl Board Votes To Move Game

Updated:
DALLAS (AP) -- The board that oversees the Cotton Bowl Classic Tuesday voted to move the game to the new Dallas Cowboys stadium in 2010.

The New Year's Day game is currently played at the open-air Cotton Bowl at Fair Park in Dallas.

The new Cowboys venue in Arlington opens in 2009, and will feature a retractable roof.

Backers hope the move will help return the Cotton Bowl Classic to college football's national stage.

A domed stadium is important to bowl game officials because of the often cold weather for the January game.

The Cotton Bowl is also home to the annual games between Texas and Oklahoma, and Grambling State and Prairie View, during the State Fair of Texas.

Those matchups are under contract at the Cotton Bowl through 2010.
