College Football Gets A Four Team Playoff
After so many people have expressed their displeasure with the current BCS college football post season and who teams are selected for the national championship game, we will now have a four team playoff!
A four-team playoff for college football has been formally approved by a presidential oversight committee, a dramatic change for the sport that will begin in 2014. The four teams will be chosen by a selection committee, the semifinals will be held at current bowl sites and the national championship game will be awarded to the highest bidder.
The 12-year deal is through the 2025 season.
The 11 conference commissioners and Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick presented their proposal to a board of 12 university presidents at the Dupont Circle Hotel. In less than three hours, the group agreed upon a postseason that college football fans have been clamoring for years.
