    Houston submits bid to host "Champions Bowl"

    Houston bids for SEC-Big 12 Bowl, playoff rotation - NCAA Football - SI.com

    Houston submitted a 12-year bid on Tuesday to host the new Big 12-SEC bowl and join the rotation for semifinal games in college football's new postseason format that will begin in the 2014 season. The game would be played at Reliant Stadium, home of the NFL's Houston Texans.

    Cotton Bowl organizers have also expressed interest in hosting the game at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas and officials affiliated with the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta are also interested in joining the rotation.

    Jerry World is the only place that should be considered.

    Rotate between New Orleans and Arlington. Only 2 locations that are worth it.

    I think I heard the original Cotton Bowl agreed to pony up some money for modernizing that stadium to keep the Red River Rivalry there, is it possible they move the Cotton Bowl game back to the Cotton bowl and let Jerry World host the Champions Bowl?
