Scrolling through some of the theories, the B1G, PAC and SEC all want the B12 to go to 12 teams. They think the lack of the B12 having to put its champion through a CCG gives it an unfair advantage. Also, the CCGs build more hype for these bowls.
From my understanding, this game will not be in the "regular rotation", maybe once every three years. Dallas will be the home for the game, but it will alternate to New Orleans in years it is a national semi-final.
