2 7Sports' preseason bowl predictions for the Cotton Bowl Live 2020 season turn out to be correct, there could be a rematch of that contest after this coming season.
Induction Day for the seven newest members of the Cotton Bowl Hall of Fame will be Wednesday, May 6, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington with the enshrinement ceremony set for 12:00 p.m. (Noon), on the West End Zone Plaza.
Memphis has a new coach in Ryan Silverfield, but high expectations still surround this team after finishing 2019 as the highest-ranked Group of 5 team and earning a trip to the Cotton Bowl. The Tigers are once again led by a high-powered offense that features quarterback Brady White and running back Kenneth Gainwell, while the defense features seven returning starters from a group that limited teams to 26.4 points a game last fall. Even though Memphis lost to Penn State in the Cotton Bowl, the New Year's Six contest was a good showing for Silverfield in his first game on the sidelines for the Tigers. However, the challenge over a full season won't be easy in 2020. The Tigers begin the post-Mike Norvell era locked into a tight battle for the top spot in the AAC behind UCF and Cincinnati.
247Sports does not have a Big 12 team in the playoff, so it would be the Big 12-champion Sooners that would face the Aggies. The 2020 Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic is set to be played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington on Wed., Dec. 30.
