    Inaugural Dallas Football Classic renamed

    The Dallas Football Classic bowl game that is to be played on January 1, 2011 in the Cotton Bowl has been renamed. The bowl game that will pit a team from the Big Ten against a team from the Big 12 or Conference USA is now known as the TicketCity Bowl.

    TicketCity Bowl

    Personally, I think renaming the Dallas Football Classic to the TicketCity Bowl does make it lose some of its luster. However, it is still a January 1st bowl game, and it is still being played in the Cotton Bowl. This is my first choice and hope of where Iowa State plays this bowl season.

    Terrible name. But still a decent bowl.

    Re: Inaugural Dallas Football Classic renamed

    Dallas is the only place I would be able to go this year. I went last year so told my wife I definitely wouldn't go this year (before I had any idea we would actually be on the verge of making one). But, my Mom lives in Dallas so I could make that work:)

    Yes -- TicketCity Bowl is not a good name; however, how can you have Inaugural and Classic in the same title?

    I wish they would of renamed it the TicketCity Bowl at the Dallas Football Classic. Kind of a long name, but I just like the sound of the Dallas Football Classic.

    I would think so. Since it is being played at the Cotton Bowl, which is a classic venue.

    Re: Inaugural Dallas Football Classic renamed

    My only complaint about this bowl, other than the new name, is that it is on ESPNU and would have fewer viewers than a game on ESPN.


    Step 1: Cut a hole in the box.

    Having this game on Jan 1 is a complete joke

    A hawk pretending to be a cyclone on a cyclone board is an even bigger joke. Every single post of yours is down on iowa state and the big 12.

    Re: Inaugural Dallas Football Classic renamed

    Not really any worse of a name than Capital One Bowl, Outback Bowl, Pappajohns Bowl, Carquest Bowl, Insight Bowl, or any other bowl that is strictly a sponsor's name these days.

    I think the Rose Bowl is the only bowl game these days that isn't preceded by a sponsor's name, but it's still in the name somewhere.
