It looks like we are (finally) close to having a real playoff in college football. The current rumors indicate that there will be five or six bowl games that rotate hosting the semi-final games. Six would seem to make sense so that two bowls would host the semi's each year and they would go get to host once every three years.

If six is the magic number, what bowl games should make it (they can be existing bowl games or new ones just made up for this)?

Rose
Fiesta
Sugar
Orange
Reliant Stadium (Houston)
Cowboys Stadium (even though I despise Jerry Jones) which now hosts the Cotton Bowl
Holiday Bowl?

Leave the bowls as they are and add 3 roaming venues for the playoff games a la the NCAA Tourney.

I'd bet money it's these six.

Rose
Sugar
Orange
Fiesta
Cotton
Chick-fil-A (formally the Peach Bowl)

I guess the Rose will get rid of B1G and Pac12 requirement, otherwise how can they be part of it...

I agree... But that ship has sailed.

As long as the Rose Bowl does not lose out, things should be fine imo. The finest location for a neutral site game in college football hands down.

Ok.

Knowing how college bowls, national title games, and the Super Bowl tend to be in three states with multiple host cities (California, Florida, and Texas) you really don't think at least one of them will host more than one?

I'm not counting Atlanta out or anything, but I do feel that either Cali, Texas, or Florida will have two in rotation.
