Jerry Jones is looking to make Cowboys Stadium the host site for the national championship game of the proposed four-team college football playoff, assuming presidents of BCS schools decide to bid out the game as expected. According to Chuck Carlton of the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys owner has formed a non-profit entity.

Carlton’s report confirms the suspicions of Sports Illustrated’s Andy Staples:
Expect Jerry Jones to promise each conference its own oil well to get the title game at his palace in Arlington, Texas. Essentially, a look at recent Super Bowl sites should provide a good idea as to where the title games will be played.
While bowl games–more than likely the Rose, Sugar, Orange and Fiesta–will likely serve as the sites for the semifinals, Staples says that the sites won’t be tied into the conference of the higher-seed playing in the game. More than likely, the sites will be determined a year ahead of time to avoid logistical concerns.
