South Florida Awarded 2021 College Football Playoff National Championship

OU 5th, OSU 11th in College Football Playoff rankings

Lucas Oil Stadium will be the site of the 2022 College Football National Championship game. Los Angeles' bid was led by the Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission (LASEC).

"Los Angeles is a world-class city with a great record as sensational hosts to college football championships, Olympics, Super Bowls and other top events", CFP executive director Bill Hancock said, adding that "the new stadium will be spectacular".

"We are thrilled to be able to bring the national championship game back to this area", said a statement from Don Slesnick, president and chair of the Orange Bowl Committee. The game then will go to Indianapolis' Lucas Oil Stadium in 2022, the new National Football League stadium in Los Angeles in 2023 and Houston's NRG Stadium in 2024.

Indianapolis is set to host college football's biggest event. "'Why does college football always have to have its championship in the Sun Belt?' We're pleased with our decision to go north". "We have done that." said Hancock.

The new stadium in Southern California that will be the home of the NFL's Rams and Chargers will be the site of the 2023 national title game, followed by NRG Stadium in Houston the next year.

Indianapolis is no stranger to hosting marquee events.

This will be the first time the College Football Playoff National Championship is played in the Los Angeles region. The committee for deciding the locations had expressed to us that they would really like to see Indianapolis make a bid for the game.

It will be the first national-title game in Southern California since Florida State defeated Auburn 34-31 at the Rose Bowl in the 2014 BCS title game. The 2018 game will be in Atlanta, 2019 in Santa Clara, Calif., and 2020 in New Orleans.
