College Football Playoff Quotes

TOMMY BAIN, CHAIRMAN, AT&T COTTON BOWL CLASSIC
“The conference commissioners put their trust in us to be a part of the new playoff system. We pledge that the AT&T Cotton Bowl will continue to be a showcase for North Texas and all of college football. The Classic’s Board of Directors and staff are anxious to get started planning for the new system.”

RICK BAKER, PRESIDENT, AT&T COTTON BOWL CLASSIC
“This is a tremendous day for the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic. Being asked to serve as one of six bowl games that will comprise the new college football playoff system is something we have been working toward for such a long time. Again, this would not have been possible without the help of so many people. AT&T, our Board of Directors, city leaders throughout Dallas, Fort Worth and Arlington, as well as the Dallas Cowboys family stepped up when we needed them the most. This truly was a team effort.”

JERRY JONES, DALLAS COWBOYS FOOTBALL CLUB
“When we invited the AT&T Cotton Bowl to move the Classic to Cowboys Stadium in 2009, we wanted to give them every opportunity to raise their game back to the level it once was. The AT&T Cotton Bowl Board and staff do a tremendous job each year of putting on one of the best college football games of the year. Because of that, it’s extremely gratifying to see the game back on top where it belongs. To know they will be hosting the semifinals at Cowboys Stadium once every three years is certainly exciting. We couldn’t be more pleased for the AT&T Cotton Bowl.”

MAYOR ROBERT CLUCK, CITY OF ARLINGTON
“The City of Arlington has been honored to host the most treasured college football event in North Texas - the historic AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic - in our community for the past four years,” said Mayor Robert Cluck. “Now the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic will become host to college football’s biggest games. Arlington has truly become a major college sports destination.”
