IRVING, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 8, 2013) -  After the excitement of the holidays, many people find it difficult to get back to the daily grind. For those looking to prolong the fun and festivities, the annual AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic offers the perfect opportunity. Now in its 78th year, the annual college football game is one of the top matchups in the postseason, and the Courtyard Dallas DFW Airport South/Irving is thrilled to offer fans a convenient Irving, Texas airport hotel minutes from the game.

On Friday, January 3 at 7pm, two teams from the Big 12 and Southeastern Conference will face off at the 78th AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic. This hotel near Rangers Ballpark in Arlington offers ticket-holders a convenient place to stay as well as affordable transportation services. For $25 per person, guests can enjoy roundtrip transportation to and from the game, the convenience of avoiding traffic and the chance to partake in refreshments without having to worry about driving back at the end of the night.

To get ready for the big game, fans can also purchase the Cotton Bowl Tailgate Package for $50, granting them access to join the Cotton Bowl Bash tailgating party at Fishbone Grill & Oyster Bar, directly across from the stadium.
