The BCS Presidential Oversight Committee officially approved the plans for a four-team college football playoff beginning with the 2014 season. The participating teams will be selected by committee and the BCS formula will soon become extinct.
Though the new process will not be the same as the BCS, we can use former BCS final standings as a guide to retroactively project how a four-team playoff may have played out in recent seasons. The SEC has been on an unprecedented run of late, winning each of the last six national championship games. Under the new format, the SEC would have continued to dominate in terms of participation, but the likelihood of any conference winning the playoff six years in a row wouldn't have been very likely.
