The first championship game in the College Football Playoff will be held at Cowboys Stadium. The BCS conference commissioners announced Wednesday that Arlington, Texas edged Tampa in the bidding to be the site of the first title game under the new playoff system.

The game will be held January 12, 2015.

The final three sites for the semifinal rotation were also announced and Cowboys Stadium came up a winner again. The Cotton Bowl, which is played at the $1.2 billion home of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys, will be part of the six-bowl rotation, along with the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta and the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona. The Holiday Bowl in San Diego also bid for a spot in the semifinal rotation, but couldn't pull the upset.

The Rose, Orange and Sugar bowls are already part of the semifinal rotation. The Rose and Sugar will host the first semifinals January 1, 2015.

The next season, the Cotton and Orange bowls will host the semifinals on New Year's Eve. The semis will be played in the Fiesta and Chick-fil-A bowls after the 2016 season.
