After six years off, the Big 12 will host a football championship game beginning in 2017 and to no surprise to anybody, that event will occur in Dallas. 

On Friday morning, the league announced that AT&T Stadium – home of the Dallas Cowboys – will host the Big 12 Championship game from 2017-2021.

“There is great anticipation with the return of the Big 12 Football Championship and we look forward to hosting the event in AT&T Stadium for the next five years,” Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said in a release. “The building is a state of the art facility and offers many amenities that will be enjoyed by our institutions and fans.”

FOX will hold television rights to the game in 2017 and during the odd years through 2023. ESPN will receive rights during the even years through 2024, which is the year when the Big 12’s current television contract comes to a close.
