With all signs pointing toward NCAA college football implementing a playoff system for the end-of-season national championship, Tampa officials are now looking to throw in their bid to host this big game, possibly as early as the 2014 season.
With multiple Super Bowls and countless other events under its belt, Raymond James Stadium in the Westshore District would be the premier neutral spot for the NCAA football national title game according to Rob Higgins, executive director of the Tampa Bay Sports Commission.
Higgins and company are continuing to monitor the official discourse on an NCAA football playoff and will decide accordingly once the system’s implemented.
The end-of-season playoff debate has been going on for over 30 years and now. Currently, the BCS seems to be moving away from the traditional bowl game system and into something that more represents a bracketed playoff system. What exactly that will be, no one knows yet.
What we do know is that Tampa would make an awesome spot for an upcoming NCAA football national championship. We’ll keep you posted as more news arises.
