Watch BCS National Championship


The nationally televised BCS National Championship Game was the final game in the Bowl Championship Series, determining the year's college football champions of Division 1 Football Bowl Subdivision. The top ten college football teams of a particular year were selected to go head-to-head in four games with the top two meeting in a final fifth game to determine the year's ultimate national champion. There was a particular method of selecting the teams that competed in this final bowl game. This particular method was concise, trusted and respected. Nevertheless, the selection has often been followed by some controversy. In 2003 the controversy about the selected teams was so great that the national championship was split into the BCS and AP (Associated Press) championship games. This was the only year this divided championship occurred.

As of 2013, the BCS is ended. It is in 2014 being replaced by the College Football Playoff.
