ootball will join every other major college sport in determining the national champion through a playoff system, after a committee of university presidents signed off on the proposal. Starting in 2014, the much-maligned Bowl Championship Series (BCS) will be no more, replaced by a set of semifinals between the top four college teams and then a championship game on a Monday in early January. The finals will rotate between the Rose Bowl, Orange Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Sugar Bowl, and two more yet to be determined.
