    New Orleans will be the site of the new marquee bowl game between the Southeastern Conference and Big 12.The conferences made the announcement Tuesday. The game will still be called the Sugar Bowl and will be played in the Superdome. The agreement between the leagues and the bowl is for 12 years.

    Awesome. Glad the SEC has a clear-cut opponent in the game now rather than an at-large. Maybe we can get paired up with Texas again sometime soon.

    So the Champions Bowl is replacing the Sugar Bowl but they're keeping the Sugar Bowl name? Lolwut? I thought it was going to be a different bowl altogether.

    I thought the same thing.

    Re: Sugar bowl to be host of SEC-Big XII champions game

    I'm guessing New Orleans/Sugar Bowl Inc. won the bidding so they decided to merge the two games. There was no way the Sugar Bowl could have survived playing second fiddle to the Champions game if it were held in New Orleans.

    So when they go to the four team playoff will this just automatically be one of the semi-final games? What happens when the Sugar Bowl is not a semi-final, do they just get stuck with each league's runners-up?

    Guess the Fiesta Bowl isn't too happy with this.

    Just me, but this game really hasn't excited me.

    This IS replacing the existing Sugar Bowl. The SEC/Big 12 will actually be the owners of the bowl.

    Exactly. Just like the set-up the Big 10 and Pac-12 has with the Rose Bowl.

    What was the point of all the hand wringing over the past few months if the only change was changing the Sugar Bowl format from SEC-BCS at Large to an SEC-Big XII match-up? Seems like a lot of wasted time to make such a small change.
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    Because the Cotton Bowl was the other option.

    As a result, Arlington looks to be a lock to host the National Championship game in the first playoff model.
