It's December and for football fans that means it's time to get ready for the postseason.

Right now in the NFL, the playoff races are heating up and the playoff pictures are starting to take shape.

The NFL season started with 32 teams alive for the playoffs with hopes of winning the title, but only 12 will make it to the postseason to fight for the right to be called the champion.

The top teams in the NFL get rewarded and have to fight their way through a gauntlet until only one team remains standing.

In college football something different is happening. 120 Division IA schools start off the season, but about half of them are already eliminated from title contention before they play their first game.

Even though that is the case, over half the teams are rewarded and get to play in a Bowl Game if they win six games.

Let's take a look at 10 reasons why a college football playoff would be great.
