DALLAS, TX -- Cowboys Stadium is ready to host the Arkansas Razorbacks and Kansas State Wildcats for the Cotton Bowl. Right now, the game is not part of the BCS five game system.
But this year's coaches in the bowl say it should be.
"When I came here 5 years ago to observe when I took the job, I was kind of surpised it wasn't in the BCS," said Arkansas Head Coach Bobby Petrino.
Kansas State Coach Bill Snyder agrees.
"It is a bowl that is deserving to be in the upper echelon of all the bowls throughout the country," said Snyder.
Today by phone, FOX 16 spoke with the BCS chairman. He says the likelihood of the Cotton Bowl joining the BCS is not out of reach.
"The Cotton Bowl does a tremendous job. They have a great staff. But we are not close to making that decision," said executive director Bill Hancock.
So for now, the Cotton Bowl at Cowboy Stadium will remain outside of the BCS.
