College Football Playoffs: 6 Bowls To Share Hosting Duties, According To SI.com

Next week could see the all-but-final adoption of a college football playoff plan, with BCS commissioners presenting to college presidents their four-team playoff recommendation on June 26. SI.com's Andy Staples reports on what that plan will look like, with six bowls splitting up hosting rights.

The Rose and Champions are obvious, with the Orange's ACC tie also included. As for the others, Staples has the Chick-fil-A , Cotton, Fiesta and Sugar as in the running. Though the Sugar could end up also being the Champions, depending on how the SEC and Big 12 figure they can make the most money.

Also from Staples, more details on how the bracket works in general:

  • A 12-year agreement for a four-team, seeded tournament beginning in the 2014 season. No. 1 will play No. 4, No. 2 will play No. 3, and the winners of those games will meet for the title.
  • The tournament will include the top four teams regardless of conference champion status.
  • The seminfinals will be played in bowls, and six bowls will share hosting duties during a 12-year period.
  • The championship game will be put out for bids.

Once Nebraska's Harvey Perlman and a couple others perhaps from the Big Ten grandstand for a little while about how quickly we're hurtling into the future, the whole thing should be approved, and then it'll be off to figure out TV rights and how to split up the money. Sounds easy.
