Bye, Bye BCS: College Football Playoff Plan Approved
It’s as much a part of college football’s BCS system as its bowls: The squabbling over who gets to play for the national title. Now, the system used to determine the finalists is set to change.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig reports:
Then-President-elect Obama made his thoughts clear back in 2009.
(2009: President-elect Obama) “You’ve heard my pitch. ((Reporters: “Who’s #1?//Who’s #1?)) That’s why we need a playoff.”
And playoffs it is. A committee of university Presidents, approving a plan for a four-team playoff starting in 2014. BCS Commissioners introduced the plan, which uses a selection committee to seed the top four Division I teams, similar to the way college basketball’s “March Madness” brackets are drawn up.
The #1-seed plays the #4-seed, and #2 plays #3, in semifinals that will be a part of the Bowl Championship system. The national championship will be hosted by the highest bidding city.
