NCAA Bowl Playoff

Proposed

2002

The playoff consists of 10 automatic conference champs, plus 22 at-large. Seedings are determined
by a combination of W/L, Computer Rankings and Black Magic. Projections are made based on seedings.
The later-round matchups would easily outsell any cheap bowl games (ex. Miami v Fl St in rd 2).

Big East: Miami MWest: Colorado St
