College Football - Playoff Games

Playoff Games

At the Division I FCS level, the teams participate in a 20 team playoff to determine the national championship. Four teams receive a bye week on the first round, with the top five teams being seeded. The highest seed receives automatic home field advantage, while non seeded teams must bid for the right to host a playoff game. Selection for the playoffs is determined by a selection committee, although usually a team must have a 7-4 record to even be considered. Losses to an FBS team count against their playoff eligibility, while wins against a Division II opponent do not count towards playoff consideration. Thus, only Division I wins (whether FBS, FCS, or FCS non scholarship) are considered for playoff selection. The Division I National Championship game is held in Frisco, TX.

Famous quotes containing the word games:

    At the age of twelve I was finding the world too small: it appeared to me like a dull, trim back garden, in which only trivial games could be played.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)
