This year the Cotton Bowl features a match-up of the No. 2 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide and the No. 3 Michigan State Spartans.
The winner of the Cotton Bowl advances to the College Football Championship game but the question remains will it be Michigan State (12-1) or Alabama (12-1) who plays on January 11?
ESPN has coverage of this game on New Year’s Eve starting at 8:00 pm ET from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.
The Odds: Alabama is a hefty 10 point favorite against Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl The over/under for this contest is 46.5 total points.
While Michigan State may be a double digit underdog they very well could pose to be a problem for Alabama in this one. Will it be the Spartans or the Crimson Tide who plays one more game in the new year?
