“Jerryworld” Left Out of BCS Plan

ESPN: Cowboys stadium not part of championship party

It appears the Dallas Cowboys new stadium in Arlington will not host a BCS bowl game anytime soon.

ESPN reports the BCS will meet with the Fiesta, Orange and Sugar Bowls next week to finalize plans for bowl play.

Ivan Maisel writes the format will not change and the BCS will announces the major bowls will again join the Rose Bowl as part of the championship game rotation for the next four years.

The Dallas Cowboys Stadium has already won the 2010 NBA All-Star Game, Super Bowl XLV (2011) and the 2014 Final Four.

The Cotton Bowl will be played at the new stadium, but has not had discussions with the BCS.

"Our philosophy is, we're ready when they're ready," Cotton Bowl president Rick Baker said. "We'll be there willing to do whatever we need to do to compete at the highest level of college football. … Arguably this is going to be the finest football facility in the world. It's out of our control. We're really just on hold."
