The Fiesta Bowl committee announced in July that the college football bowl game extended its agreement with the College Football Playoff for six years and will host the national semifinals in the 2022-23 and 2025-26 seasons.
The Fiesta Bowl was hosted at Tempe’s Sun Devil Stadium from 1971-2006 before it moved to Glendale and the newly built University of Phoenix Stadium.
In the home of the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals, the bowl game hosted the second of four College Football Playoffs semifinals since the new playoff format began for the 2014 season. On Dec. 31, 2016, No. 2 Clemson defeated No. 3 Ohio State, 31-0.
The Fiesta Bowl also hosted two national title games in the Bowl Championship Series era.
