OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – The Oklahoma Sooners have played national championship games in Miami (against the likes of Florida, Miami U. and Florida State) and New Orleans (against LSU).

If the Cowboys had squirmed past Alabama into the Big Bowl last season, their reward would have been a New Orleans title match against, yep, LSU.

So amid the fanfare of the historic announcement Tuesday that college football will expand its playoff system to four teams, don’t forget this glorious bonus.

Arlington, Texas, is in line to join the rotation. The road to a national title soon will go through Greater Dallas, either with the title game or a semifinal or both.

And that’s not just a good thing. “Great thing,” said OU athletic director Joe Castiglione.
