BCS Officials Consider Four-Team Playoff for 2014, AP Reports

April 26 (Bloomberg) -- Bowl Championship Series officials are considering a four-team playoff as they discuss how a college football champion will be determined starting in 2014, the Associated Press reported.

The group will meet again today to narrow the number of scenarios for the postseason, BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock told AP. The focus is on two national semifinals and a title game.

“I think that’s what everyone wants to do, get down to two, maybe three,” Hancock said, according to AP. “We’re making good progress on that. I think we’re going to make it.”

The four-team playoff still has variables: where the games are played, how the contenders are selected and how the current bowl games fit into the plan, AP said.
