Aggies to Face Oklahoma in Cotton Bowl

Updated: Sunday, December 2 2012, 10:16 PM CST
Texas A&M has accepted its 13th trip to the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic, and the Aggies will face Oklahoma in the Jan. 4 bowl game at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Kickoff for the 77th Cotton Bowl Classic is slated for 7 p.m. (CT) and the game will be televised nationally by FOX.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to represent the Southeastern Conference in the 77th AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic,” Texas A&M Director of Athletics Eric Hyman said. “Without a doubt the hospitality shown by the Cotton Bowl is legendary and I am sure our Aggies, the 12th Man, will be well-represented at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.”

The Aggies, under the leadership of head coach Kevin Sumlin, finished the regular season with a 10-2 overall record, marking its first 10-win season since 1998 and the 12th in program history. A&M was 6-2 in its first season in the SEC, which tied for second in the Western division. The Sooners also finished the regular season with a 10-2 record, and claimed a share of the Big 12 Championship with an 8-1 record. It will be a matchup of two top 11 teams in the Bowl Championship Series standings with the Aggies checking in at No. 9 and the Sooners ranking No. 11.

“Our football team is excited to play another game against a storied program such as Oklahoma,” said Sumlin, who served on the Sooners’ coaching staff from 2003-07. “We have been led all year by a great group of seniors and to be rewarded with a great experience like the Cotton Bowl is something they will cherish. Plenty of their family and friends will be able to watch them play as well and the hospitality is second to none.”

It was the Aggies’ fourth straight year with a bowl invitation, and the 34th in school history. A&M’s most recent appearance in the Cotton Bowl was the 2011 Classic when the Aggies fell to LSU, 41-24. Six current Aggies – seniors Patrick Lewis, Uzoma Nwachukwu, Sean Porter and Ryan Swope and juniors Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews – started against the Tigers and a total of 19 current players saw action in the game.

“Having played in the Cotton Bowl a couple of years ago, I know our team is excited to go back to a great venue,” Swope said. “We were treated very well and it is also nice to be able to enjoy the holidays with family and then focus and report for bowl preparations.”

Texas A&M is 4-8 in its previous 12 Cotton Bowl appearances, with the most recent victory being a 35-10 win over Notre Dame in the 1988 Classic. The Aggies played in the Cotton Bowl in 1941, 1942, 1968, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1998, 2005 and 2011. It will be the Aggies’ 16th appearance in a traditional New Year’s Day bowl game.

The long series between the Aggies and Sooners dates back to the first meeting in 1902, and Oklahoma holds a 19-11 advantage in the overall series between the two schools. The two teams split the two most recent meetings with the Aggies winning 33-19 in College Station in 2010 and the Sooners winning 41-25 in Norman, Okla., in 2011.
