Here's what the new college football playoff will look like when it goes into affect for 2014.

A selection committee will determine the top four teams after the 2014 regular season and put them in a four-team playoff. The top-ranked team will play the fourth-ranked team, the second-ranked team will play the third-ranked team, and then the winners of those two matchups get together for a championship game a week or so down the road.

The semifinals will take place in a rotating set of top-tier bowl games (like the Rose Bowl), with the championship ending up in the hands of the highest bidder. The BCS as we know it has ceased to exist.

Talk about the playoff with Cal football fans at the California Golden Blogs. Discuss the playoff with Stanford football fans by checking out Rule of Tree.
