Wait, we're confused. Isn't the Cotton Bowl supposed to be on New Year's Day? And didn't Northwestern play in the Cotton Bowl?â†µâ†µ
Oh, wait. NU played in the Cotton Bowl stadium, but that wasn't the Cotton Bowl game. And this Cotton Bowl isn't being played in "the" Cotton Bowl. It's in Cowboys Stadium. On a Friday night, after New Year's. And on a different channel than you've been used to.
Well, LSU and Texas A&M fans will enjoy it, we suppose. The rest of you can stick to the NBA, NHL or college hoops.â†µâ†µ
7 p.m., Fox-32: College football, AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic: LSU vs. Texas A&M at Arlington, Texas. Seriously, one more exhibition game tomorrow and then you're done until the BCS title game.â†µâ†µ
7:30 p.m., CSN Chicago: NHL, Blackhawks vs. Senators at the United Center.â†µâ†µ
