The 2003 SBC Cotton Bowl Classic was a post-season college football game. It pitted the Texas Longhorns against the LSU Tigers. Texas triumphed, coming back from a 17-7 deficit to win, 35-20.

The University of Texas started out their season strong, and finished well, compiling a 10-2 record: they lost to Oklahoma, 35-24 and the Texas Tech Red Raiders 42-38 while being ranked number 4.

Louisiana State started off their season 6-1. However, an injury to their starting QB Matt Mauck caused them to lose their last few games (to Alabama 0-31, Auburn 7-31, and Arkansas 20-21). They finished with an 8-4 regular season record, a disappointing year.
