College Football Playoff: Expect Dallas And The Cotton Bowl To Make A Move

Now that the move to a four-team, three-game playoff format is official, college football will have to expand its rotation of bowls to host the three newly created games. While nothing was officially announce on Tuesday, it's highly likel that the current BCS lineup - the Rose, Sugar, Fiesta and Orange Bowls - will stay on as rotating members that will host the two semifinal games.

However, officials Tuesday announced the field of host bowls would expand by two. Enter Dallas, Jerry Jones and the Cotton Bowl.

That trio could be one of the biggest winners in college football's new championship format, as the Cotton Bowl is expected to make a bid to join the BCS bowls in the semifinal host rotation, while Jones is expected to make a big to host the national championship game at Cowboys Stadium.

In essence, the Dallas / Fort Worth area could go from having almost no involvement in the game's postseason (save for the existing non-BCS Cotton and TicketCity Bowls) to serving as a frequent host for football's "Final Four."
