Sources: RFPs To Host "Champions Bowl" Due From Cities Next Week
Published July 20, 2012
WAITING GAME: Cotton Bowl President Rick Baker said, “We are anxiously awaiting the RFP so that we can find out more information about what exactly the Champions Bowl entails. It’s our understanding that will be forthcoming in the near future.” In Dallas, Chuck Carlton wrote it “might not be the only avenue for the Cotton Bowl Classic to host the national semifinals, not with Cowboys Stadium and sponsor AT&T.” Baker said, “We certainly look at the Champions Bowl as one opportunity. But we also know that there may be other opportunities that may present themselves with the at-large games. We’ll certainly be exploring that option as well” (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 7/20).
