According to playoffpac.com, Playoff PAC (“PAC”) is “a federal political committee dedicated to establishing a competitive post-season championship for college football.” PAC’s primary goal is to rid college football of the Bowl Championship Series, thereby opening the doors to a playoff system. In recent weeks, PAC has turned its attentions to the Fiesta Bowl and has filed complaints with attorney generals in nine states including Connecticut, Oklahoma, Idaho, West Virginia, Ohio, Texas, Oregon, Alabama, and Florida. PAC is challenging the legality of a contract between the Fiesta Bowl and an Arizona visitors bureau. According to PAC’s complaint, the Fiesta Bowl receives more than $8 million over a period of 20 years for requiring institutions (and their constituents) playing in the bowl to stay in high-priced hotels in Scottsdale and Paradise Valley. PAC terms this arrangement a “kickback” and has requested that the attorney generals in the above-referenced nine states conduct investigations into the legality of the agreement.
