Rose Bowl will not bid for 2020 College Football Playoff title game
The Rose Bowl has decided not to bid for the chance to host the 2020 national title game.
The Rose Bowl is currently one of six bowls that can serve as a semifinal in the College Football Playoff, and it has decided that's enough for now.
After doing a study to determine whether or not hosting the game in 2020 was worth it, the Tournament of Roses has decided against doing so.
"We would love to host a national championship game here," Rose Bowl executive director William Flinn told the Los Angeles Times. "But we have to make sure it works for everybody."
Although the Rose Bowl hosted the national title game four times during the BCS era, the move to the College Football Playoff now has cities independently bidding for the rights to host the game much like the NFL does with the Super Bowl. Arlington, Texas, hosted the game in 2015, and Glendale, Ariz., and Tampa, Fla., will host the next two. The CFP will announce the hosts for the 2018, 2019 and 2020 games this year.
The Rose Bowl hosted the semifinal game between Oregon and Florida State last season, and will once again serve as a semifinal game in 2018.
