The Dallas Cowboys have made it a tradition of holding their annual training camp in Southern California. One of their favorite cities to host it in has been Oxnard. After holding training camp there from 2012 to 2019, the streak was broken last year as the COVID-19 pandemic forced the Cowboys to train in Frisco, TX instead. Fortunately, "America's Team" is returning to Oxnard for training camp in 2021.

The Cowboys announced on Tuesday that they will hold their offseason practices in Oxnard for the 15th time. It's also the 42nd time that the organization will use Southern California to host its training camp, which begins on July 21.

The Cowboys are expected to arrive in Oxnard on July 20, with training camp beginning the next day with an opening press conference. From there, the team will continue to train until its first preason game against the Arizona Cardinals on Friday, Aug. 13. If there's one person who isn't hiding excitement about the return to Oxnard, it's Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

"I view the team's return to Oxnard as a very positive sign that the Cowboys and the NFL are moving one big step closer toward the traditional camp, preseason and regular season experience that we have been accustomed to for generations."

Hopefully, for Dallas fans, the return of training camp in Oxnard helps the Cowboys bounce back from a disappointing 2020 campaign. Fortunately, oddsmakers see that as a real possibility. The Cowboys currently have -156 odds to make the playoffs and are the +110 favorites to win the NFC East, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's odds list.
