College Bowl Games-Please Explain

Wed Jan 02, 2002 12:20 pm

OK. I feel like an idiot. I am a teenaged American male, but I do not see how all of these games can determine one team that is the best. Could someone tell me why these TV guys keep talking about a national champion when there are 25 championship games?

The ONLY championship bowl is thursday night when Miami plays Nebraska in the Rose bowl.

It doesn't determine anything. All these bowl games have one thing in mind:

Actually, although the Rose Bowl is the so called "national championship" only 1 of the 2 polls (AP) MUST vote the winner of that game the national champion. The ESPN/USA TODAY poll can vote ANYONE champion. Therefore, if Nebraska wins, they will automatically get 1 poll vote,while Oregon will PERHAPS get the ESPN/USA TODAY poll vote. That is what the commentators speak of when having a "split national champion." Either way, the winner of the Rose Bowl will get the Sears Trophy.
