The Pac-12 Conference announced Thursday that the league's football championship game will be held at Levi's Stadium for the next three seasons.

Levi's Stadium, in Santa Clara, Calif., is the home of the NFL's San Francisco 49ers.

The game will take place on Dec. 5, though no time for the game has yet been announced. The stadium will also host Super Bowl L in 2016 and the Fight Hunger Bowl starting this season.

“Pac-12 football is among the deepest and best football conferences in the country,” said Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott. “Our Football Championship Game is important for selecting a team for the Rose Bowl and possibly the College Football Playoff, and we are thrilled to offer student-athletes and their fans the ultimate venue to culminate a successful season.”

Before the season, the conference championship was held at the site of the division champion with the best record. Last season,Stanford beatArizona State 38–14 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona.
