Advocare Cowboys Classic – College Football Kickoff 2016
September 3, 2016
Missing college football? It’s okay. So are we, but don’t be sad for too long. College Football will be back before you know it, and no better way to kickoff college football than in the biggest football city of them all, Dallas, TX. The Advocare Cowboys Classic Kickoff game takes place in just a few short months on September 3, 2016 at the beautiful AT&T Stadium. The 2015 National Champions Alabama Crimson Tide are back to defend their title and will face the USC Trojans in the eighth annual Advocare Cowboys Classic. This is also the eighth time Alabama has faced USC, but the first regular season match-up since the 1970s.
This is the third time Alabama has kicked-off their season at the Advocare Cowboys Classic defeating both the Michigan Wolverines in 2012 41 to 14 and then defeating the Wisconsin Badgers just last year 35 to 17. Their 2012 match-up against the Wolverines was the most well attended Cowboys Classic at just over 90,000 attendees.
We expect the 2016 Advocare Cowboys Classic to be bigger than ever with defending champions Crimson Tide’s return to AT&T Stadium, and we should see sell outs throughout the city across this Labor Day Weekend event. Many hotels in Arlington are already sold out, selling for above $200 per night and requiring 2 or 3 minimum night stays across the whole weekend. Book your rooms now before prices start to increase even more across Dallas. The Wingate by Wyndham Las Colinas is a great affordable hotel in a convenient location near DFW Airport. Wingate Las Colinas offers a complimentary shuttle plus a delicious hot breakfast every morning along with manager’s receptions every week. Recently renovated and conveniently located in the bustling Las Colinas area near DFW Airport just outside Dallas, Wingate Las Colinas is an obvious choice for anyone traveling for the Advocare Cowboys Classic.
