Jerry Jones and Cowboys Stadium have been called a ‘virtual lock’ by sources to ESPN to hold the first national championship game under college football’s new playoff system in 2015.
There are only two sites in the running – Arlington, Texas, and Tampa Bay, Florida. Other potential hosting sites didn’t even participate in the bidding because Arlington was already the prohibitive favorite.
The BCS commissioners will meet April 23-25 to officially announce the site and details surrounding the new playoff and format.
“It’s pretty clear to everyone that it’s headed to Cowboys Stadium,” an industry source told ESPN.
The 2014 season’s national semifinal games will be held at the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl on January 1st. The national championship will be held on January 15th.
In today’s college football world, money talks and tradition falls by the wayside.
So, all you members of the Flat Earth Society who actually think the BCS is worth something (me!), enjoy 2013, because it’s the last year of the BCS as we know it before college football radically changes to the four-team playoff in 2014.
