WASHINGTON, DC (KPTM) - The BCS Committee has agreed to a four-team playoff for college football.
Conference commissioners met with an oversight committee of university presidents and chancellors in Washington Tuesday to approve the four-team seeded playoff, consisting of two semifinal games in bowls and a national championship game that will be put up for bid.
Commissioners presented the plan for 30 minutes then took questions from the presidents, who then deliberated for about three hours before announcing their approval.
The presidents also endorsed the concept of the semifinals rotating among six bowls.
They also endorsed the idea of a selection committee for the playoff teams, which would end the combination of computer and human polls that have been lightening rods for criticism since the BCS began.
Current BCS contracts run through the 2013 season, so the playoff would go into effect after the 2014 season.
