The Pac-12 Conference and the Santa Clara Stadium Authority have announced that the Pac-12 will host its annual football championship game at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, through 2016.
“Pac-12 football is among the deepest and best football conferences in the country and deserves the biggest stage,” said Larry Scott, commissioner of the Pac-12 Conference. “Our football championship game is important for selecting a team for the Rose Bowl and possibly the college football playoff, and we are thrilled to offer student-athletes and their fans the ultimate venue to culminate a successful season.”
Levi’s Stadium opens for the 2014 football season as the new home for the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers. The facility has already secured the rights to host WrestleMania 31 in March 2015, Super Bowl L in February 2016 and the annual San Francisco Bowl in December 2014.
This year’s Pac-12 football championship game will take place on December 5.
