Here’s the map for 2011 Cotton Bowl, updated to show which side Texas A&M (Big 12) and LSU (SEC) sidelines are on. The game will be played on Friday, January 7, 2011 at 7:00 PM.
What happens to the Top 10 on a big holiday weekend… not much it turns out. Now that the Big 12 Championship has been set, it climbs from 5 to 1. No doubt this sudden surge of interest is partially attributable to the presence of our home town team, the Longhorns, in the championship game. The remainder of the top 5 is a pop tour-de-force with Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and Miley Cyrus all there to welcome this week’s chart newcomer Justin Bieber.
Justin Bieber is a 15 year old Canadian pop singer whose debut album My Word was released on November 17th. A recent autograph signing for Mr. Bieber was the cause of near-riot at the Roosevelt Field Mall where a Def Jam Recordings (really?) record exec got arrested for what the media liked to play up as “failure to tweet.” People hate on Wikipedia as a source, but I’d not be able to relate most of that information without it, as I am far outside Mr. Bieber’s target demo in both age and chromosomes.
The bottom 5 shows interest in the SEC championship remains strong, if not quite what it was over the past couple weeks. As both Big 12 and SEC championships are this weekend, it’s likely both may experience a last minute surge. The recent Texas-Texas A&M rivalry game contributed to both teams appearing in the countdown. John Mayer slips a bit and Aventura returns once more after a few weeks absence.

We’ve all waited and the time has come… That’s right, the new Cowboys Stadium officially opens this weekend with it’s first public event headlined by George Strait. Additional star-studded performances include Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton, and Julianne Hough. The public will now have the chance to take in everything about the new stadium – from the seats and views to concessions and restrooms. There will surely be reviews of it all. And for those of you attending, we hope you’ll give us your feedback and photos as well.
TicketCity took a tour of the new stadium a few weeks ago and at that point there was clearly still some work to be done. But the ginormous video display was hoisted and secured, making the rest of the preparations for this opening weekend seem like a piece of cake. Take a look at our Tour of the New Cowboys Stadium - and a special offer on football tickets for the upcoming season!
For those of you attending the George & Reba show , have fun knowing many of you will be the first to ever sit in that seat at the new stadium. And if you haven’t gotten your tickets to see the new stadium yet, check out some of these upcoming events:
Thanksgiving Day football is more than tradition – for most fans it’s an absolute necessity. Anytime the family congregates on a holiday, there is usually television involved – whether it’s New Year’s Eve broadcast from Times Square in New York, re-runs of It’s a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story around Christmas, or local fireworks on July 4th.
On Thanksgiving, there are two staples of television: The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and football. Both are equally important to watch for some families, as both capture the sense of participation, sharing and merriment during the Thanksgiving holiday season.
The tradition of Thanksgiving Day (NFL) football goes as far back as 1920, and the Detroit Lions have been playing on Thanksgiving Day since 1925. Up until 2008, only six NFL teams have not competed on Thanksgiving Day.
