College football has finally come around and decided on a college football playoff system, something many fans have been craving for ages. Many believed the move to a playoff system would lead to the death of the BCS, which is exactly what it has done.
In name, at least.
Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby recently spoke with the San Antonio Express-News, referring to what the new playoff system will be called.
The league is very stable. We have signed our (television) grant of rights for 13 years, and we'll be putting together a new game with the SEC (the Champions Bowl) that will be terrific. And the BCS package and the national championship series is really coming together. We've made a lot of progress recently.
The playoffs will now be called the "National Championship Series," and the newly agreed upon bowl between teams in the SEC and Big 12 will be called the "Champions Bowl."
