ARLINGTON, Texas -- This time next year, AT&T Stadium will be hosting not only the Cotton Bowl, but also the College Football Playoff's first championship game.
Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy, moments after his team lost 41-31 to Missouri in the Cotton Bowl, was asked about Jerry Jones' palace hosting the first title game under the new system.
"I just don't know if there's a better facility out there that puts on a show and is accommodating to the game," Gundy said. "It's very impressive. I think that whoever made the decision made a good decision to give these people the opportunity to have that national championship game."
AT&T Stadium beat out Tampa, Fla., to host the title game and will do so on Jan. 12, 2015. The stadium will go into the rotation for semifinal games in future years. The Cotton Bowl will be on Dec. 31, 2014 as part of a triple-header of games.
