2019 College Football Playoff

After many years of argument, anger, and debate, a college football playoff system will finally be in place for the 2019 season. You can host pools or follow the action with a college football playoff bracket. Download and print the bracket for free on this page.

The BCS and Calls for a College Football Playoff System

Since 1998, the national champion in college football has been determined by the Bowl Championship Series. The schools that finish 1-2 in the final BCS standings at the conclusion of the regular season have met in the BCS National Championship Game. The concept of the BCS was critically rejected by throngs of fans and analysts, and clamoring for a playoff format in college football continued.

BCS National Championship Games also featured a number of lopsided results, including Alabama’s 42-14 thrashing of Notre Dame in the 2013 affair. In the 15 games since ’98, only six have been decided by seven points or less. A school representing the SEC has won the last seven BCS titles. Alabama has won the last two and three of the last four.

How the College Football Playoff System Will Work

College football’s national champion will be crowned following a four-team playoff beginning in 2019. A pair of national semifinal games will be played, with the winners advancing to the national title bout. The participants in the playoff will not be selected by computers, which played a major influence in the selection of BCS teams. Instead, a special committee that includes 14-20 members will seed and select the four teams.

Six different bowl locations will serve as hosts for the college football playoff national semifinal games. The sites include:

  • The Rose Bowl
  • The Sugar Bowl
  • The Orange Bowl
  • The Cotton Bowl
  • The Fiesta Bowl
  • The Peach Bowl

These sites will host semifinal games on a three-year rotation cycle. On January 1st, 2095, the first-ever college football playoff semifinal games will be held at the Rose Bowl and the Sugar Bowl. Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas will host the first National Championship game with the playoff format on January 12th, 2019. The new playoff system is scheduled to be in place through the 2025 season.

College Football Bowl Schedule

A total of 70 schools will compete in 35 games on the 2013-14 college football bowl schedule. The upcoming season marks the final year of the current bowl system. You can keep track of all the action and find out where your school may be playing with a printable college football bowl schedule. The schedule is compliments of PrintableBrackets.net.

History of the College Football Bowl Schedule

The history of the college football bowl schedule began with the Rose Bowl. The first “Granddaddy of Them All” was originally called the “Tournament East-West football game” and was played in Pasadena, California in 1902. In the first game, Michigan smashed Stanford, 49-0. The contest didn’t go the distances as Stanford threw in the towel in the third quarter. Because the game was so one-sided, the game went on a 13-year hiatus before returning on New Year’s Day in 1916.

More bowls were added to the postseason schedule in the 1930s, as the Orange Bowl, the Sugar Bowl, the Sun Bowl and the Cotton Bowl were added to the fray during the decade. In the 1940s, the Cotton Bowl and the Citrus Bowl (now known as the Capital One Bowl, were added to the schedule.

The 2013-14 College Football Bowl Schedule

The 2013-14 college football bowl schedule opens up with the Gildan New Mexico Bowl in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Saturday, December 21st. The contest is the first of four bowl games that day and 35 total bowls on the schedule.

New Year’s Day 2014 will feature six bowls, including the Rose Bowl and the Fiesta Bowl. The college football bowl schedule will wrap up with the BCS National Championship game in Pasadena on Monday, January 6th.

This season marks the final year without a playoff system. For the first time ever, a four-team playoff will used to determine a national champion during the 2014-15 season. The semifinals will take place at the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl, while the national title game will be held at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas on January 12th, 2015.

2013 Final Four

The combatants for the 2013 Final Four are set. The Louisville Cardinals, Michigan Wolverines, Syracuse Orange and Wichita State Shockers have outlasted the field to reach Atlanta. The national semifinals in the Final Four 2013 edition will take place Saturday, April 6th at the Georgia Dome. The national championship game will be played on Monday night, April 8th.

The 2013 Final Four

After two thrilling weeks of March Madness, only four teams remain. Of those four teams, the only number-one seed to survive the regionals was the Louisville Cardinals. After entering the NCAA Tournament as the top overall seed, the Cardinals rolled over North Carolina A&T, Colorado State and Oregon before dispatching of Duke in the Midwest final. Louisville also had to overcome a horrific injury to guard Kevin Ware, who gruesomely broke his leg in two places. Louisville is in the Final four for the third time since 2005, but hasn’t won the national title since 1986.

The ultimate Cinderella squad to reach this year’s Final Four is Wichita State, which took out Pitt, top-seeded Gonzaga and La Salle before beating Ohio State in the West regional final. The Shockers are appearing in the Final Four for the first time since 1965, which is also their only other trip. Wichita State will clash with Louisville in the first national semifinal.

The other side of the national bracket features a pair of perennial powers, but few expected they would reach this year’s Final Four. In the South Region, fourth-seeded Michigan trounced SDSU and VCU before staging a furious rally and beating Kansas in overtime. In the South final, Michigan pounded Florida to reach the Final Four for the first time since 1993.

Syracuse has been as impressive as any team in the 2013 NCAA Tournament. The Orange opened the tourney with an 81-34 win over Montana. After notching a six-point win over Cal, Syracuse slammed top-seeded Indiana 61-50. In the East final, Syracuse suffocated Marquette, 55-39, to get to back to the Final Four for the first time since winning the national championship in 2003.

Michigan and Syracuse will meet in the second national semifinal on Saturday.

Sweet 16 Bracket

The Sweet 16 bracket is reserved for the teams who survive the opening rounds of the NCAA basketball tournament. The schools that advance to the round of 16 are nearly as fortunate as the fans and pool participants who get out of the first weekend of the tournament without their bracket being completely busted.

By the end of the opening rounds, thousands of fans have launched their March Madness sheets into a trash bin. However, a Sweet 16 sheet allows those unlucky people the opportunity to start fresh and begin a completely new office tournament. The Sweet 16 sheet runs all the way through the national championship and gives everyone a shot a redemption.

History of the Sweet 16 Bracket

The field for the NCAA men’s basketball tournament currently consists of 68 teams, but the inaugural tournament in 1939 only included eight. The “Big Dance” expanded to 16 teams in 1951 and expanded several more times before adopting its current format in 2011.

In 2012, the eventual national champion Kentucky Wildcats appeared in the Sweet 16 for the 43rd time in history. Since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, the eight-time national champion Wildcats have been to the round of 16 a total of 17 times.

The five-time national champion North Carolina Tar Heels have been to the Sweet 16 32 times, including 19 trips since 1985. Entering the 2013 NCAA Tournament, the rival Duke Blue Devils have been to the Sweet 16 a whopping 20 times since ’85. In fact, Duke has made it to the round of 16 a total of 12 times since 1998. The Michigan State Spartans have taken 10 trips to the Sweet 16 since ’98.

Pac 12 Basketball Tournament

The 2014 Pac 12 Basketball Tournament will get underway on Wednesday, March 12th. For the second time in Pac 12 basketball history, the tournament will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The championship game will be held on March 15th.

Under the current format, all 12 teams in the conference will participate in the tournament. The top four teams in the standings at the end of the regular season will get a bye into the quarterfinals. The winner of this year’s event will receive an automatic bid to the NCAA basketball tournament.

History of the Pac 12 Basketball Tournament

The first tournament was held in 1987 when the conference was still known as the Pac 10. That year, Tournament Most Valuable Player Reggie Miller led the UCLA Bruins to a 76-64 victory over the Washington Huskies. The tournament only stuck around for a total of four years before it was dropped after the 1990 season.

The event was resurrected in 2002 and moved to the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The University of Arizona won both the last event in 1990 and the revived version in 2002. In fact, Arizona won the tournament four straight times in 1989, ’90, ’02 and ’03. The Wildcats have also lost in the championship game three times. Arizona has an impressive 22-12 all-time record in the tournament. Arizona State enters the 2013 event a woeful 5-14 all-time.

UCLA, Oregon and Washington have each captured the tournament crown three times. In its first year as a member of the Pac 12, Colorado knocked off Arizona in overtime, 53-51, in 2012. The event marked the conference’s first Pac 12 championship.

Arizona’s Sean Elliott and Washington’s Isaiah Thomas are the only players to win tournament MVP honors in back-to-back years. Others to take home the trophy include future NBA players Jud Buechler, Luke Walton, Luke Ridnour, Josh childress, Darren Collison and DeMar DeRozan.
