So far it’s living up to its billing. The Cowboy Classic in Arlington, Texas September Third has been promoted as pitting a pair of top five teams. It will do just that as the Number Three Oregon Ducks face the Number Four LSU Tigers cementing the games as one of the marquee preseason games of the year. Oklahoma is ranked number one; Alabama two. Boise State rounds out the top five.
