Where To Watch The Memphis Tigers In The 2019 Cotton Bowl

Posted by Holly Whitfield | December 26th 2019 2944 0

I’m bursting with pride for our Tigers football team this year! It’s been a record-breaking season, with 12 wins including an AAC Championship title and an unforgettable GameDay experience in front of a sold out Liberty Bowl crowd.  The 17th-ranked Tigers finish out the season on Saturday, December 28th at 11 a.m. in the Cotton Bowl against #10 Penn State.

Obviously the answer to this post’s title “Where To Watch The Cotton Bowl?’ is at the game. But if for whatever reason you can’t make it to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, here’s a list of great places to watch the game in Memphis.
