Starting in 2018, the Cotton Bowl will host three marquee rivalry games.
Texas Southern and Southern will play their annual game at the historic venue during the third weekend of the State Fair of Texas in 2018 and 2019, a Texas Southern spokesperson confirmed Monday.
The game between the Houston school and Southern, located in Baton Rouge, La., joins Prairie View A&M-Grambling and Texas-Oklahoma on the list of games played during the festival weekend.
According to the Baton Rouge Advocate, the 2018 game will be the first installment of the Texas State Fair Football Showdown.
Traditionally, the game between the historically black colleges rotated between the two campuses. Texas Southern, which plays its home games at Houston’s BBVA Compass Stadium, will be looking for its first win over Southern since 2011.
Southern won the last meeting 26-10 in Baton Rouge.
