ATLANTA (AP) — The city of Atlanta wants to host college football's national championship game in 2018 as a prelude to a possible Super Bowl bid.

Peach Bowl President Gary Stokan discussed the timetable after a news conference Monday to announce a six-year agreement with the current title sponsor. The game is part of a new playoff system and will again be known as the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl after carrying only the corporate moniker the last eight years.

Stokan already announced plans to bid for the national title game after the city's $1 billion downtown stadium opens in 2017. He expects a decision next spring.

If Atlanta is selected, Stokan says it would bookend with plans by the NFL's Falcons to bid for the 2019 Super Bowl.
