As of 2014 there will no longer be a Bowl Championship
Subdivision. The BCS is dead. A college football playoff lives.
University presidents from the 11 major conferences and
Notre Dame met Tuesday and approved the new plan. Instead of pitting the supposed
No. 1 team against the supposed No. 2 team in the country at the end of the
season, the new format will create a pair of national semifinals. No. 1 will
play No. 4, and No. 2 will play No. 3.
And the winners will advance to a national championship game.
The teams in the playoff will be selected by a committee, similar
to the way the NCAA basketball tournament field is set.
There are still some lingering details, such as what the revenue
share will be.
