On Wednesday night, the BCS commissioners committee announced that the group had reached a consensus on a four-team playoff system, which is expected to be implemented in 2014.

As of this time, there is no specifics available on what the model will be but it is believed that the commissioners will be presenting a four team system proposal to the BCS presidential oversight committee sometime next week and it is believed that the group will also be preparing a four team, plus-one option as well.

Jim Delaney the commissioner of the Big Ten stated that he is proud that the college football postseason has evolved.

Via the Wall Street Journal:

"I hope that whatever we do that we can come up with a system that enjoys more support from participants," Delany said. "Cause there's no doubt about it that the BCS was an improvement over the status quo... Any system can only last so long without support and with just constant criticism."
