Finally the moment college football fans have been waiting for. A committee of university presidents has finalized a four team playoff for Division 1 football. The new format will go in to effect beginning in the 2014 season. Under the plan the semifinal games will consist of the number one and fourth ranked teams and the number two and third ranked teams meeting in the current BCS bowls, on a rotating basis. The winner of those matchups will meet in a championship game that will be played in a city awarded to the highest bidder and not necessarily to a current BCS Bowl.
