Talk:2019 College Football Playoff National Championship

2018 SeasonEdit

Shouldn't this article be for the 2018 Championship? The 2019 season does not start until September. The fact that the CFBPNC game is not played until a calendar date in 2019 does not change the fact that it is the game for the 2018 regular season. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:51, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi - historically, games are named based on the year that they are played, not the season they are associated with. This is done consistently across all the various college football bowl games; not just here on Wikipedia but also in the press. For a random example, see the 1976 Rose Bowl, played on January 1, 1976, as one of the final games of the 1975 season. The point you raise is why the season itself is highlighted in both the lead and the infobox. Dmoore5556 (talk) 17:57, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
Additionally, here's this year's Jan 1 bowl games that follow the same naming rule: 2019 Fiesta Bowl (January), 2019 Rose Bowl, 2019 Citrus Bowl, 2019 Outback Bowl, and 2019 Sugar Bowl. PCN02WPS (talk | contribs) 18:48, 7 January 2019 (UTC)


I've uploaded photos I took from up in the nosebleeds to commons:Category:2019 College Football Playoff National Championship. Unfortunately Levi's has restrictions on camera lens length (and there was a chance it would rain...), so these were shot with my smaller point and shoot camera.

Nice, thanks! I'll look to incorporate some of those later tonight (if other editors don't beat me to it) Dmoore5556 (talk) 21:35, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
