The Fiesta Bowl is a major college football bowl game that is played every year at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale Arizona, which is home of the Arizona Cardinals NFL football team.

The teams competing in the semifinal games will be selected by the CFP Selection Committee, made up of thirteen experts. The winners of the two semifinal games will compete in the College Football Championship Game.
