College Football: How the New Playoff System Would Look This Year

According to Fox News and Business Week, it has been confirmed that the NCAA has ratified their movement to go forward with six bowl games, including two playoff games, beginning in 2014. 

The six bowl games will consist of three bowl games to be known as "contract" bowls, and an additional three games to be referred to as "access" bowls.

The "contract bowls" will be made up of the Orange, Sugar and Rose bowls, each consisting of teams from either the Big Ten, Pac 12, Big 12, ACC, SEC or Notre Dame. Of these three matchups, two will be the playoff games.

"Access" bowls will consist of matchups between five at-large teams, and an automatic qualifier, which will be the highest ranking team from the Group of Five (Big East, Mountain West, Sun Belt, C-USA and Mid-American).

Unfortunately, we will have until 2014 to witness our first college football playoff game, but let's see how the new format would look this year.
