College Football Playoffs: BCS Commissioners Support Selection Committee To Choose Final Four

BCS commissioners have finally come to the consensus that college football needs a four-team playoff. Now, discussion turns toward selecting the field. According to Sports Illustrated's Stewart Mandel, the commissioners prefer using a selection committee, as the NCAA does for the men's basketball tournament, to determine the field over polls or computer formulas.

While winning a conference championship would not be a playoff requirement, it can and likely will be a factor if selection committee is formed. CBSSports.com's Brett McMurphy also tweeted out that bowl games will very likely be used to host the semifinals rather than on-campus sites.
