NCAA Division I FBS National Football Championship

From CFBHC Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The CFBHC Championship is decided by a playoff system. Starting in 2013, the CFBHC Playoffs invited the top 4 teams to fight it out for the Championship Trophy. The format stayed this way for the 2014 season as well. In 2015, the playoff expanded to 9 teams with every conference champion getting an auto bid (provided they met the 9-3 before CCG requirement). In 2017, the playoffs went back to 8 teams, with the top 4 conference champions getting automatic bids and the seeds #5-#8 being supplied by at-large bids.
