UNDATED - BCS conference officials have identified candidate cities to host the first championship game in college football's new postseason system, and the four current BCS bowls will be among the choices.

The current BCS games - the Fiesta, Rose, Orange and Sugar bowls - are about to enter an exclusive negotiating period.

BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock said Monday in a statement that the commissioners will begin talking to those organizers from those games immediately about the possibility of hosting the first national championship game to be played under the newly developed four-team playoff system on Jan. 15, 2015.

He did not identify other cities, but ESPN.com reported earlier Monday that the Georgia Dome in Atlanta and Dallas Cowboys Stadium would also be considered.
