IRVING, Texas – Bill Hancock, Executive Director of the College Football Playoff (CFP), announced Friday that the agreements for the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic, PlayStation Fiesta Bowl and Chick-fil-A Peach Bowls to host CFP games have been extended for six more years, through 2026.
"These bowl games have provided a quality experience for the student-athletes and fans for many years, including the first four seasons of the CFP, and we know that will continue," said Hancock. "The communities of greater Dallas, Phoenix and Atlanta have fully embraced the opportunity to be a part of this very popular event and to showcase the unique opportunities they offer to visitors."
