The first BCS Standings of the penultimate season of the current BCS era were released on Sunday, October 14, 2012. Starting in 2014, College Football's Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) will move to a 4-team playoff format.
Here's how things stand under the North Coast Plan using the inaugural 2012 BCS Standings (Dated: 10.14.12).
1st Round Games - Home Sites
Louisiana Tech at Rutgers
Western Kentucky at Boise State
Notre Dame at Ohio
Florida at Michigan
*Projections assume the highest rated team from a conference as that conference's champion. Since there are currently 11 FBS conferences and not the 10 there will be when the playoffs take effect, only 10 projected conference leaders are used in the projections. If the projected WAC Champion is rated higher than the projected Champion of the conference that that team will belong to when the playoffs take effect, then they are included in the projection (i.e. Louisiana Tech rated higher than current C-USA leader).
