“Our team has looked forward to being in Dallas. Having had the good fortune to be in the Cotton Bowl before, I’ve experienced the hospitality extended by the city and certainly the Cotton Bowl committee. Their reputation as being a serving bowl committee – and most serving bowl committee – is a very sincere one and honest one. Our guys are enjoying the finest hospitality.
“I enjoy coming back to Dallas because I was very fortunate to be part of the Dallas Cowboys organization for three years.
“Myself, the coaches and the players are very excited about having the opportunity to play in the prestigious 75th Cotton Bowl Classic. We’re really looking forward to our matchup. We have an extremely well-coached and talented opponent in LSU, but our players have practiced hard in preparation for this game and are looking forward to the ball game. Everything we heard previous to coming up here about the Cotton Bowl Classic and the first-class attitude they have towards everything that applies to us has been fulfilled and I’m sure it will continue that way.
