Topic - The College Football Playoff
The weekly college football coaches' poll will go on, though it won't have a direct say in which teams play for the national championship anymore.
Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long will be the first chairman of the College Football Playoff selection committee, and the rest of the 13-member panel that will decide which teams play for the 2014 national championship will be officially revealed Wednesday.
The committee will pick the four teams to play in the national semifinals. The winners will play about a week later for the national championship.
A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that Arlington, Texas, has beaten out Tampa, Fla., in the bidding to be the site of the first title game in the new playoff system.
The first championship game in the College Football Playoff will be held at Cowboys Stadium.
The grandest stage in sports was too much for the guys who are putting together the College Football Playoff to pass up.
