The Cotton Bowl Classic is reportedly the "prohibitive favorite" to host the 2015 national championship game, according to Brett McMurphy of ESPN.

It will be the first national championship decided by college football's new playoff system, and the choice of Cowboys Stadium makes perfect sense for several reasons. 

The first is quite simple: dollar dollar bills, y'all (h/t Wu-Tang Clan). The BCS presidents already decided the right to host the national championship game will go to the highest bidder, so if Jerry Jones and Co. are offering the most money, then why not capitalize?

The second reason is seating capacity. Cowboys Stadium has held over 108,000 people in the past. In comparison, Sun Life Stadium—which is hosting this year's national championship game—has a maximum capacity of about 79,000.

You don't have to be a math major to figure out that's a lot more seats, and thus, a lot more money.

And the final reason is the spectacle that Cowboys Stadium would create. Say what you want about Jerry Jones' football decisions, but there's no denying that the guy knows showmanship. 

Reeves Wiedeman of The New Yorker once labeled Cowboys Stadium a "shrine to excess," and he was absolutely correct. Nobody has mastered extravagance quite like Jerry, and there's no doubt that he would put on one hell of a show when given the national spotlight.

If the ultimate reason for sporting events is entertainment, then there is simply no better place for the national championship game than The House That Jerry Built.
