College football - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1755 words)
Bowl games generally match two teams of similar standing from different conferences, although some pit a high ranked team from a smaller conference against a lower ranked team from a more prestigious one.
This formula, incorporating numerous computer rankings and human polls, is used to determine the top two teams in the country.
Also, to add to the controversy, the Bowl Championship Series champion has not always been the undisputed national champion; for example, in 2003, the Associated Press and Bowl Championship Series chose different champions, which is precisely what the system was designed to prevent.
