(CHICAGO) — Major changes in the way college football determines a national champion could be coming. The commissioners of the BCS are backing a four-team playoff plan under which the major bowls would host the national semifinals on a rotating basis.
Under the proposal, the national championship would be played in any city that wins the bidding rights to host the game.
The formula the BCS currently uses in determining the national championship game would be done away with and replaced by a selection committee that would choose the playoff teams.
The plan will be presented to university presidents next week. If approved, the changes will be implemented beginning in 2014.
