2013 bowl game schedule: Cotton Bowl showdown to highlight weekend slate

A Cotton Bowl game between Texas A&M and Oklahoma will mark the first of three bowl games scheduled for this weekend.


With the majority of bowls around the country already long over, fans will have only three more opportunities to catch a college football game this weekend before Monday's BCS National Championship.

In a game pitting two of the most explosive offenses in the sport, Friday night's Cotton Bowl between Texas A&M and Oklahoma looks to have all of the ingredients for a possible shootout. Aggies freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel is coming off a remarkable season where he amassed 4,600 yards from scrimmage with 43 total touchdowns, and the 6'1 Kerrville, Texas, native will try to cap off his year with a bowl win over Bob Stoops' Sooners.

Scheduled to be played immediately before NFL playoff football begins on Saturday, the BBVA Compass Bowl will feature a pair of six-win schools in Pittsburgh and Ole Miss. Kent State and Arkansas State will then square off in the Bowl on Sunday to wrap up the weekend in style, as the Red Wolves will look to rebound from a loss to Northern Illinois in last year's event.
