College Football Playoff agrees to bowl games through 2026
IRVING, Texas (AP) —
The College Football Playoff agreements for the Cotton Bowl Classic, Fiesta Bowl and Peach Bowl have been extended six years through 2026.
Bill Hancock, executive director of the College Football Playoff, made the announcement Friday.
"The communities of greater Dallas, Phoenix and Atlanta have fully embraced the opportunity to be a part of this very popular event and to showcase the unique opportunities they offer to visitors," Hancock said.
The three bowl games will host a CFP game every year during the six-year period: the semifinals twice, and other non-playoff games assigned by the CFP selection committee four times.
The Orange, Rose and Sugar Bowls were previously announced as semifinals hosts on a rotating basis through 2026.
