LIMITED ACCESS: In Dallas, Chuck Carlton writes the Cotton Bowl’s “only path now to be part of the semifinal rotation will be as one of the ‘access bowls’ in the new system.” The Rose and FedEx Orange Bowls are “guaranteed spots in the new playoff system, along with [the] Sugar because of their contracts with conferences.” At least three “access bowls” and “maybe a fourth will also be part of the system, with no decision expected until January.” The Chick-fil-A Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, and Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas are among the “top contenders for the ‘access bowls,’ with several other cities expected to bid.” The “combination of the Cotton Bowl’s tradition and reputation for hospitality along with all the benefits of Cowboys Stadium should position it well," but "nothing is certain at this point” (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 11/7).
