The San Francisco 49ers has lost their bid to host the 2017 college football national championship game at Levi's Stadium.

The game will instead be played at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium. One of the reasons Levi's Stadium was passed over is shortage of hotel rooms in the area.

Organizers also cited the lack of a track record, something the new stadium obviously couldn't overcome.

Levi's Stadium was among six bidders for the January 9, 2017 championship game.
