College Football Championship

ENCOURAGING COMPETITION

Conferences are encouraged to compete, and rewarded for doing so.

REWARDING MAJOR CONFERENCES AND ENCOURAGING OTHER CONFERENCES TO COMPETE

  • Conferences’ collective strength is measured at the end of each season using a cumulative Conference BCS score

    • The Conference BCS score is calculated by adding the BCS points earned by a Conference’s teams that are in the BCS Top 25 at the end of the regular season

  • The Conference Champions from the top 6 Ranked BCS Conferences will be given an automatic slot in the Quarterfinals of the playoff system in the following year

    • Use of Conference BCS scores to rank conferences makes it possible for any conference to qualify as a Top 6 Ranked BCS Conference if it should increase its level of play to have one of the Top 6 Conference BCS scores 

    • Encourages all conferences to continue maintaining and pursuing the highest level of play and competition

    • The number of pre-season non-conference games are reduced by 1 for all college football teams

    • Pre-Season Classics are not allowed to invite BCS Playoff System participants from the previous year to play in the following year’s Pre-Season Classics
