Dallas is among the cities that could host the Champions Bowl.
Dallas is among 10 cities the Champions Bowl has sent requests for proposals to host the Big 12-SEC postseason matchup. This game is being compared to the Rose Bowl and the primary reservation on it is whether or not it could generate what the Rose Bowl generates the Pac 12 and Big Ten.

Three other bowls will be called "access" bowls and join the semifinal rotation, to be chosen from candidates that could include the Sugar, Fiesta, Cotton, Capital One and Chick-fil-A.
