The College Football Playoff is entering its fourth season of existence and, to this point, the results have been very good. For the past two seasons, Alabama and Clemson have matched up in memorable title games that featured two different champions and, while the inaugural edition between Ohio State and Oregon wasn’t quite as fantastic, it certainly was not void of drama or intrigue.
The 2017-18 edition will feature a National Championship Game in Atlanta, followed by the 2018-19 game in the Bay Area and the 2019-20 game in New Orleans. That trio of venues gives college football fans quite a bit to look forward and, on Wednesday, word broke of the four sites that will take the reins when the CFP leaves New Orleans.
Miami, Los Angeles and Houston are known as big-time event towns, especially on the sporting landscape, and those will be fun. Beyond that, Indianapolis has done a tremendous job with the Big Ten in recent years and Lucas Oil Stadium is a state of the art venue that should be able to hold a fantastic experience.
It is probably too early to start booking travel for specific fan bases (except for maybe Alabama) but mark your calendars and get ready for four more versions of the College Football Playoff.
