Cotton Comes to Dallas (Well, Stays, Actually)

On April 25, the Austin American-Statesman's Kurt Bohls insisted the annual University of Texas-University of Oklahoma game at the Cotton Bowl was a goner come 2008. (OK, so he reported that someone close to UT and the Cotton Bowl said it was "80-20 that Texas will leave" the Red River Shootout, forcing it back to a home and home situation.) Well, The Dallas Morning News is now saying, without many specifics, that the schools have re-upped their deals with the Cotton Bowl through 2010. An announcement is expected today or tomorrow--probably tomorrow, since it's nearly 5 now. --Robert Wilonsky
