College Football Playoff finally arrives

AUBURN, Ala. -- College football is on the eve of a new era. Sixteen years of the Bowl Championship Series is now giving way to the College Football Playoff. No longer will the two teams playing in the national title game be decided by a mathematical formula. Instead, a 13-member selection committee will choose who they deem as the four best teams in the FBS and place them in a bracket, slotting the one-seed against the four-seed and the No. 2 team versus No. 3.
