The Big XII and the SEC have apparently decided on a host city for their new “Champions” Bowl which starts up in 2014. But you’re going to have to wait until an announcement next week to find out which city/bowl won the game.
SEC commissioner Mike Slive told ESPN.com’s Andy Katz that — as we all already knew — the selection of the host city has become “a two-horse race” between Arlington, Texas and New Orleans. It’s Jerry Jones’ monster stadium versus the French Quarter. It’s the Cotton Bowl or the Sugar Bowl.
Based on its tourism industry and it’s geographic location about halfway between the two leagues, MrSEC.com has stated on multiple occasions that we would like to see the game land in New Orleans rather than Arlington. Nothing against the Metroplex, but where would you rather spend a few days in January?
