Top G5 Champ To Be in Either Peach or Fiesta
Cotton Bowl is out per McMurphy.

The highest ranked Group of 5 champion will either play in the Fiesta or Peach Bowl this season and not the Cotton Bowl.
All three bowls are supposed to be the options for the top Group of 5 champ, but the Cotton will not be considered because it will host the Group of 5 champion after the 2019 season.
This is significant news for fans of teams in the running for the New Year's 6 bid. Nearing the midpoint of the season, San Diego State of the Mountain West and UCF, USF and Navy of the American are currently the most-likely candidates for the Group of 5 New Year's 6 bowl bid.
Executive director Bill Hancock told me the College Football Playoff prefers not to send a Group of 5 team to the same bowl twice in a three-year cycle. This is the first-year of the three-year cycle. After next season, the Fiesta or Peach would host the Group of 5 champion, with the Cotton Bowl locked in for the Group of 5 champion after the 2019 regular season.

Pretty sure we already knew this from the first three-year cycle.

Does that mean they will pick one of these bowls first, and then will decide which G5 team goes, or will they decide which bowl when they know if it's an eastern or western champ who will represent the G5?

So a fan of SDSU or USF/UCF, likely living in southern California or Florida, will have to travel to Phoenix or Atlanta, instead of Dallas, in January.

Don't think it's going to matter much.

I could never see myself excited about going to a football game in Arizona to play the second or third best team in some conference. I really wish we would just get rid of the NY6 bowls and have another round of playoff games.

Well yeah, as a USC fan that makes sense. For an SDSU fan though, this would be their Western Michigan moment.

Then their coaching staff gets hired off to some P5 program, and SDSU returns to obscurity. 04-cheers

Personally, I think it makes more sense to see who the G5 rep is before deciding what bowl they should go to. Geography matters.

Ha! This is America, remember. Every individual entity is trying to maximize their own individual profit, even (and especially) at the expense of other individuals. Trying to maximize a collective profit via central planning is viewed with extreme contempt.

One other point, it is possible for 2 so called G5 teams to be placed in NY6 bowls by the committee and this is the year it could happen. The bowls do not choose the teams. If both SDSU and the American champ are ranked in the top12, then they likely will HAVE to be both be placed in NY6 bowls. The at large pool comes from the highest ranked available teams from the CFP rankings, and there are 5 at large spots
