College football • The first championship game in the College Football Playoff will be at Cowboys Stadium.
A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that Arlington, Texas, has beaten out Tampa, Fla., in the bidding to be the site of the game.
The final three sites for the semifinal rotation also were 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, Ariz. The Rose, Orange and Sugar bowls are already part of the semifinal rotation.
