You’ve been clamoring for it for years and now it looks to be on the horizon. Consensus was reached between BCS commissioners and Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick on Wednesday endorsing a four-team college football playoff. If the consensus is approved by the BCS presidential oversight committee on June26, the four-team playoff would replace the BCS starting in the 2014 season.
Sources told ESPN.com that under the recommended model, four participating teams would be selected by a committee, which would consider certain criteria such as conference championships and strength of schedule.
The two national semifinal games would be played within the existing BCS bowl games (Fiesta, Orange, Rose and Sugar) on a rotating basis, with the host sites being predetermined before each season. The national championship game would be offered to the highest bidding city.
Now comes an even bigger fight. Just who should make up this new committee?
