BCS National Championship Game
Many call the BCS National Championship Game the absolute highlight of the college football bowl (post)season and THE game of the BCS bowl games series. The intention of the last game of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) is to determine the National champion of the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision. The very first time the BCS Championship game was played was in 1998 at the conclusion of the 'regular' college football season.
In case you wonder, what are the names of the BCS bowls: Back in the late 90's the game was initially rotated among the four participating (BCS Rose Bowl, Orange Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, and the Sugar Bowl) bowl games. As time went by, beginning with the 2006 season, the BCS National Championship Game became a separate event played in the week following New Year's Day, which for the 2011/2012 season will be on January 9, 2012 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA. Alabama Crimson Tide and the LSU Tigers are matched-up to win the trophy this time.
The stadium where the championship is held rotates amongst the sites of the BCS bowl. The locations for the next few years are:
