College Football Rumors: Oklahoma to Face Texas A&M in Cotton Bowl?
According to several reports, it looks like we could be getting a rematch of former Big 12 schools in the Cotton Bowl. If the reports are accurate, Oklahoma is going to the Cotton Bowl and their opponent could be Texas A&M.
TexAgs.com head Billy Liucci is reporting the possible matchup.
Texas A&M vs. Oklahoma in Cotton Bowl, January 4. Looking forward to the best non-BCS bowl matchup.

Texas A&M had a terrific year, finishing 10-2 in their first season in the SEC. Quarterback Johnny Manziel had a incredible season in his first year as the starter and by most accounts is the favorite to win the 2012 Heisman Memorial trophy.
Oklahoma had aspirations of a national championship birth but were derailed by losses to the Kansas State and Notre Dame. They had an outside chance to win the Big 12, but Kansas State took care of business against Texas and will play in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.
The Cotton Bowl would do well to make this their matchup. The game is played in Dallas and is a matchup of two teams who, since the late 90s, had gotten used to playing each other every year in the Big 12 South. It would be a huge draw both ratings wise and for the stadium. Johnny Football is one of the most exciting players in the country, Oklahoma fans are used to traveling to this stadium as they play Texas there every year, and Texas A&M travels as well as any school in the country.
As a Texas A&M fan it will be exciting to see these two teams play again in one of the New Year’s Day bowls. They are two of the better teams in the country and have explosive offenses.
