                === 'College Football Playoff' replaces BCS ===
 
 Pasadena,  CA  (Sports Network) -  The new college football playoff postseason
 system,  which  begins after the  2014 regular  season, will be named "College
 Football Playoff."
 
 The  much anticipated  announcement came  Tuesday  from the  Langham Hotel  in
 Pasadena.
 
 "We  decided to call  the playoff what it is -- the College Football Playoff,"
 BCS  executive  director Bill Hancock said.  "We think the new playoff will be
 the  most dynamic  improvement to college football in a generation. Certainly,
 it's  what the fans want. We also invite everyone to vote online to select the
 logo and help us kick off the new College Football Playoff."
 
 The  College Football  Playoff will feature the  top four teams as chosen by a
 yet-to-be-named  selection  committee. The  Rose Bowl and  the Sugar Bowl have
 already been chosen to host the first national semifinals, which will pair No.
 1 versus No. 4 and No. 2 versus No. 3 on January 1, 2015.
 
 The  first title  game of the College  Football Playoff will be Jan. 12, 2015.
 Cowboys Stadium will reportedly be the site for the first championship game of
 the playoff era. That announcement is expected Thursday.
