The two semifinal games rotate among six major bowl games, referred to as the New Year's Six: the Rose Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Orange Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, and Peach Bowl. The New Year's Six represent six of the ten oldest bowl games currently played at the FBS level. The semifinals are scheduled usually on Friday, Saturday, or Monday close to, or on, New Years Day, with some flexibility to ensure that bowl games traditionally held on New Years day are not in conflict with the semi-final games. The CFP National Championship is then played on the first Monday that is six or more days after the semifinals. The venue of the championship game is selected based on bids submitted by cities, similar to the Super Bowl or NCAA Final Four. The winner of the game is awarded the College Football Playoff National Championship Trophy. Playoff officials commissioned a new trophy that was unconnected with the previous championship systems (such as the AFCA "crystal football" trophy which had been regularly presented after the championship game since the 1990s).
