The Pac-12 has been the only major conference that's held its championship football game in a non-neutral site. That will change this year when the conference's North and South champions meet at Levi's Stadium on Dec. 5. A press conference announcing the new site will be held Thursday at the 49ers' new stadium.
The 69,000-seat stadium is the first NFL venue to be built in California since the 1960s. It will host its first game on Saturday, Aug. 2 when the MLS Earthquakes host the Seattle Sounders. That match will be used as a test run to make sure all of the stadium's operations - from parking to concessions to the video boards - work properly.
JoeBruin had blogged about this being a possibility last week, generating mixed reactions in the comment threads. So why not have a poll to figure out how the community is feeling about this move?
