The National Championship Game
The college football playoff national championship competition began in the 2014 college football season, and it is a post-season college football bowl game which is used to decide the national champion of the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision. Typically, the championship acts as the last of the College Football Playoff which is a tournament between only the top four teams in the country as decided by the selection committee. It acted as a replacement to the BCS National Championship Game and Bowl Championship Series. Nevertheless, unlike it had been in the BCS Championship, the teams that will participate in the College Football Playoff National Championship are settled on by two semi-final bowls that are hosted by two of the confederation’s six bowl members yearly. Furthermore, the two best teams as the selection committee decides do not get to advance to the game in comparison to other bowls automatically. Consequently, this has had an exceptional side effect in that since the inauguration of this playoff competition, and the number one seed has always won the National Championship.
