Cowboys Stadium to host college football title game

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — The grandest stage in sports was too much for the guys who are putting together the College Football Playoff to pass up.

The BCS conference commissioners announced that Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, edged Tampa, Fla., in the bidding to be the site of the first championship game in the new playoff system.

“The stadium itself was the biggest determiner,” BCS executive director Bill Hancock said about the $1.2 billion dollar, 100,000-plus seat home of the NFL’s Cowboys and the Cotton Bowl. “It’s still THE stadium with a capital ‘T.’”

The College Football Championship Game will be held Jan. 12, 2015.
