The BCS conference commissioners announced the name of the new postseason system that starts in 2014 on Tuesday.
They also will choose the remaining three sites for the six-bowl semifinal rotation in the new system and the site of the first championship game to be held Jan. 12, 2015, this week.
Three semifinal spots have already been decided: the Rose, Orange and Sugar bowls.
Four other bowls have bid for the final three spots. The clear front-runners are the Cotton, Chick-fil-A and Fiesta.
The Holiday Bowl in San Diego also put in a bid, but even its organizers have acknowledged they are a long shot at best to land the game.
Those decisions will be announced today.
