It shows the importance of attending the Capital One Orange Bowl year after year to ensure tickets for these important playoff games.”
This is the first year the Capital One Orange Bowl will host a College Football Playoff Semifinal. Over the next 11 years, the Capital One Orange Bowl will host a Playoff Semifinal every three years.
