Seating Overview

The Cotton Bowl is one of the most iconic venues in college football. It has hosted a number of epic Red River Showdown games between Oklahoma and Texas, and still hosts the State Fair Classic and other events.

When purchasing tickets for the Texas/Oklahoma game, most fans prefer to sit with their fellow alum. Texas fans typically sit in sections 7-23 and 107-127, while OU fans sit on the opposite side. Those sitting at midfield will be right in the middle of the rivalry as the seating sections change from one school to the other.

Other Considerations

The Cotton Bowl is a fairly traditional stadium. It has a lower level, upper level, and a limited number of Club Seats on the west sideline.

Given a choice, most fans prefer to sit on the west side (sections 1-10, etc.) because those seats are shaded first and have the sun at their back.

To avoid obstructions, avoid row numbers above 50 in the lower level. Pillars hold up the upper deck and can block your view. For guests wanting to stay out of the sun, these upper rows do provide relief.
