Yeah, heck rematch of not just the unofficial conference championship game last year, they're in the same division of the conference, but also of the national title game where Alabama returned the favor and beat LSU after LSU won the earlier match up.

So I'm just going to say how I think College Football and the NCAA works from the things people have told me and the things I've read online:

The NCAA Division 1 in football has 6 conferences, and each conference has their own championship to try and win, like the SEC teams go for the SEC Championship? And then on top of that you have to National Championship, which is the BCS Series, which is like, 4 Bowl games plays throughout the year right, the Fiesta, Orange etc., and it changes every year which Bowl gets the National Championship Game, am I right so far?

The other three bowls games are decided by the bowl runners choice of the two teams they want to face I'm guessing, or that's what someone on this forum told me I think. Then the National Championship Game is whoever (overall) is the top two of the AP Poll and the Coaches Poll, and they face off and whoever wins is National Champion?

I'm just trying my best to get into College Football at the moment!

You're close. The National Championship is the top 2 teams from the BCS standings. The Coach's poll affects the BCS, but the AP has nothing to do with it anymore.

Also, the four major bowls, Fiesta, Orange, Sugar, Rose are still played regardless of the National Championship. However, yes, the BIG GAME rotates between those four. Still, if it's played in the Rose Bowl, there will still be a Rose Bowl, followed by the National Championship game which will be played in the Rose Bowl a few days later.

All the major bowl games (BCS games) are played on or a bit after the New Year. The season ends in November so you have a few weeks layoff between the last game of the season and the bowl season picking up. In that time you get the awards handed out, the Heisman Trophy being the most prestigious.

Ah okay, and the BCS standings are determined by the teams with the best win-loss record, or the teams on stop of a certain estimated ranking (like wins divided by points for= average) or something? And I think I get how the Bowl season works, like it could go- Rose Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Orange Bowl, Sugar Bown then the National Championship right? And what's the Heisman Trophy?

The Heisman Trophy is given to who the sports writers think is the best player in the nation. Robert Griffin III won it last year. It's usually a QB, but sometimes it's a RB. Very few WR or defensive players have won it, but it's not unheard of. Charles Woodson is the last defensive player to win it I think. I also want to say Desmond Howard was the last WR. It's almost always a QB or RB though. There are other awards for best linebacker, defensive lineman, offensive lineman etc, but the Heisman gets the most press.

As far as the how the BCS is determined, yeah win/loss record matters, but there are other factors. There are computer rankings that are used, along with the Harris and Coach's Polls. Just look it up and read about it. It's overly complicated when we could just have a playoff system.

Quote:
This year, the BCS Standings will once again include three components: USA Today Coaches Poll, Harris Interactive College Football Poll and an average of six computer rankings. Each component will count one-third of a team's overall BCS score in the BCS Standings.

The statistical rating system used to determine the teams that will participate in the championship game of the Bowl Championship Series consists of three components and each will count as 1/3rd of the final BCS formula - subjective polls of Harris Interactive (replaces AP) and coaches (USA Today) and six computer rankings.
That's from this link: http://www.collegefootballpoll.com/bcs_explained.html

Read that. Don't worry everyone gets a headache from this bullshit.

Also here is the current BCS as of this week.

http://espn.go.com/college-football/bcs

The top 9 are mostly legit. Jury is out on Notre Dame for me though.

TEXAS LONGHORNS

HOOK EM

They've been pretty bad the last few seasons though. It's pretty frustrating watching arch rival Oklahoma kick their ass.
