Potential FBS Title Game Sites Beginning in 2015

Sources told ESPN that the Football Bowl Subdivision will consider from only six cities when deciding the host of the FBS's first playoff title game in 2015. Those six cities include the four current BCS bowls – Fiesta (Glendale) , Orange (Miami), Sugar (New Orleans), and Rose (Pasadena), plus the Cotton Bowl in Arlington and the Chick-Fil-A Bowl in Atlanta.
As if the NCAA and associated organizations didn't already rake in the profits, the post-2015 title game will go to the city with the most attractive bid (i.e., most likely the city that forks over the most dough) in a system quite similar to the one the NFL uses to decide the Super Bowl host city. The FBS was originally looking to do this for 2015, but due to time constraints they chose to expedite the process by limiting it to six cities.
