Undoubtedly the most controversial issue in college football over the past few decades, and possibly college sports entirely, the BCS Bowl game system will end after the 2013-2014 season. This is due to an almost unanimous outcry for a playoff which is now officially set to begin in 2014. The playoff would feature the 4 best teams at the end of the season (ranked by a committee) and set up a “final four” format with the winners of the semi final games playing one another in the championship. Ironically, controversy is already swirling around this decision as many coaches feel threatened by the selection committee. However, there will always be a case from each program about why they deserve to play for the national championship and that is why you play the games. The best defense for being selected to play in the title game would be an undefeated record which would almost guarantee your bid as it is extremely rare for 4 teams to all not lose a game throughout the season.
All that banter aside, we have for one last time the 5 BCS Bowl games at the finale of the 2012-2013 college football season. These games are the Sugar, Orange, Fiesta and Rose Bowl games as well as the BCS National Championship game. The title game changes venues among the 4 locations each year and will be played at Sun Life Stadium in Florida which is also the home of the Discover Orange Bowl. The title game will be played by the teams that finish the season ranked #1 and #2 in the BCS.
With the 2012 college football season quickly approaching, look for pre-season favorites LSU and USC-this is merely a prediction and is in no way based off of facts- to meet in the National Championship game due to the promise of both of these prestigious programs.
