Where are you getting this about the Champ's Bowl ?
I'm not sure how that could be right, since it is a game still in search of a home, and when that home is determined, it can't host the SEC-BigXII match-up and host a NC Semi-Final at the same time...
I have seen 6 bowls mentioned, and I think everyone assumes Rose, Orange, Sugar, Fiesta are in, plus 2 more.
Other 2 were speculated on by one guy as Cotton and Capital One (is that Orlando ?)
Seems believable. I'm not familiar with the stadium used for Capital One.
I think first the 6 semi-final hosts are defined.
Then they bid out NC game for next 12 years (I am unlclear if concept is for those 6 to double-host, if NC game is played in a differnt location, or if anyone is putting any restriction on it).
I would THEN think one of the 5 (other than Rose) wins the bidding to host SEC-Big XII Champs Bowl Game in years that bowl is not hosting a semi-final....
Thoughts ? Or do we have any more definitive information at this point ?
Tute, it's a ROTATION. So in a year when the Rose Bowl is hosting a semifinal, obviously, it won't be PAc-12 vs Big Ten. Same goes for the Champions Bowl. In years when both are NOT hosting a semifinal, the Rose will ALWAYS be Pac-12 vs Big Ten and Champions Bowl will always be SEC vs Big 12.
And when the #1 from the Pac-12 or Big Ten is not available for the Rose bowl due to the semifinals, the plan thus far is for #2 to be slotted in from the conference. Same for the Champions Bowl.
The conferences have control over the bowls again, a return to how things were in the past.
