Earlier today, we told you via Headlines that the Fiesta Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Chick-fil-A Bowl, and Holiday Bowl had sent in bids to join the new college football playoff bowl rotation. Now, according to ESPN.com’s Brett McMurphy, the Fiesta, Cotton, and Chick-fil-A have emerged as “overwhelming favorites” to join the six-bowl lineup.
Sorry, Holiday Bowl.
With San Diego likely out of the mix, the six bowls/sites that have been talked about for months indeed appear to be closing in on their own places at the playoff table. If McMurphy’s sources are correct — and they usually are — starting in 2014 your semifinal rotation will include:
Chick-fil-A Bowl — Atlanta, GA
Cotton Bowl — Arlington, TX
Fiesta Bowl — Glendale, AZ
Orange Bowl — Miami, FL
Rose Bowl — Pasadena, CA
Sugar Bowl – New Orleans, LA
Somewhere Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany must be steaming over the rotation’s lack of a cold-weather locale.
