Vegas Odds On NCAAF BCS 2014
The Bowl Championship Series, better known as the BCS, is the NCAA College Division I Football Bowl Subdivision team ranking system. It is comprised of five bowl games played after the NCAA football regular season which culminates in the top two teams competing in the BCS National Championship Game. The BCS includes the Rose Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Fiesta Bowl and Orange Bowl, as well as the BCS National Championship Game that is played at one of those stadiums annually one week after their regular bowl game on a four-year rotating basis. In place since the 1998 season, the BCS uses polls combined with complex computer selection methods to rank teams, and has been controversial since its beginning. The BCS came into being as an agreement between the six power conferences and three FBS independent schools. The ten teams selected for the five BCS bowl games every year are comprised of the six conference champions from the ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac 10 (now the PAC 12) and SEC conferences, as well as four other teams.
About the BCS and BCS Bowl Games
Since the NCAA does not name their own national football champions, any ranking system will always be controversial. The Bowl Coalition gave way to the Bowl Alliance, which then became the BCS, and before that we had the Associated Press (AP) and Coaches Poll with each declared their own version of NCAA Division I college football champions at the end of the year. Prior to the formation of the BCS, the AP number one and two ranked teams met in bowl games a scant 8 times in 56 years. However, since the creation of the BCS, the number one and two teams have played each other 12 years in a row by the BCS ranking system and 9 times according to the AP Poll.
Vegas Odds On BCS participants will probably change drastically following the 2014 college football season, when the BCS as we know it fails to exist. Following the 2014 season the BCS will be replaced by a four team playoff. Many college football coaches and fans have decried the BCS agreement between the six power conferences, and the 2012 BCS National Championship Game did nothing but add fuel to their fire. That was the first time that a BCS Championship Game pitted two conference rivals against each other, and LSU was soundly thumped by Alabama 21 to 0.
Ohio State University leads all teams in BCS bowl game appearances with 9, coming away with an impressive 6 wins. Oklahoma has been to 8 bowl games in the BCS format and managed 3 victories, and USC is an impressive 6 - 1 in their seven BCS bowl game contests. The University of Florida has 5 wins in 6 BCS bowl game appearances, and Florida State and Virginia Tech have also been six times to a BCS bowl game, however they each only came away with 1 victory. Louisiana State University is next in overall appearances with 5, and an impressive 4 victories in those five contests.
As an NCAA sponsored Football Bowl Subdivision ranking system, the BCS will continue to award a Division I College Football National Championship through the 2013 season. Will the SEC continue its championship game dominance and improve on their incredible 8 - 1 record in the most important game in college football? Or will another conference step forward and enforce their will on the rest of the college football nation. With the Rose Bowl, Sugar bowl, Fiesta Bowl and Orange Bowl joining the BCS National Championship Game in making up the BCS series, the only thing we know for sure every year is that the BCS will deliver the best that college football has to offer.
