Pac 12 Football Teams BCS
WASHINGTON — College football will finally have a playoff. Come 2014, the BCS is dead.
A committee of university presidents on Tuesday approved the BCS commissioners’ plan for a four-team playoff to start in two years.
“A four team playoff doesn’t go too far,” Virginia Tech President Charles W. Steger said. “It goes just the right amount.”
The move completes a six-month process for the commissioners, who have been working on a new way to determine a major college football champion after years of griping from fans.
“There were differences of views,” Steger said. “I think it would be a serious mistake to assume it was a rubber stamp.”
Instead of simply matching the nation’s No. 1 and No. 2 teams in a championship game after the regular season, the way the Bowl Championship Series has done since 1998, the new format will create a pair of national semifinals. No. 1 will play No. 4, and No. 2 will play No. 3. The sites of those games will rotate among the four current BCS games — Rose, Orange, Fiesta and Sugar — and two more to be determined.
