If Atlanta wasn’t the capital of college football before, this certainly helps.
The Chick-fil-A Bowl will be one of the six bowls that will host a semifinal game in new College Football Playoff that starts in 2014.
Atlanta will host a national semifinal every three years, with the first being on Dec. 31, 2016 in the Georgia Dome. That will be followed by playoff games in 2019, 2022 and 2025. They will be in the new retractable-roof stadium.
Also, an interesting bit of trivia,
By 2016 Atlanta will have hosted the College Football Playoff, Olympics, Super Bowl and Final Four in a 20-year span. The only other city to have hosted those four major events is Los Angeles.
And the cherry on top – they are putting the “Peach” back in the Chick-fila Bowl!
