Pac-12 to Host 2014 Championship Game at 49ers Home (Levi) Stadium?

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

The Pac-12 reportedly is in talks to make Levi's Stadium, the new home of the 49ers, the permanent host of the Pac-12 Championship Game.

SI.com is reporting that the Pac-12 is in talks to make Levi's Stadium, the new home of the 49ers, the permanent host of the Pac-12 Championship Game.

If a change is made, it will be made effective this season.

There are pros and minuses to this plan. On one hand, having a permanent site would make it easier for the conference to consistently sell tickets year-round.

While the Bay Area isn't too far, I know that I certainly would prefer to have the Rose Bowl set as the permanent host, but, based on the article, the Rose Bowl does not appear to be in the discussion.

Other potential sites mentioned include Seattle, Phoenix and Las Vegas.

I'd rule Vegas out based on the size of the stadium there. Seattle and Phoenix would seem to tilt too far in one direction

The advantage of keeping the game as a home game for the top-seed means that the home team certainly has that bonus of having their fans at the game. Of the three games so far, Only the 2012 game had an attendance issue with less than 35,000 in attendance. The other two games have been close to 60K and 70K. While the weather was terrible for the 2012 game, I would think that the conference would prefer to avoid having so few people again.

How would you feel about the conference making state-of-the-art Levi's Stadium as the permanent site?
