Sometimes simple is better.

The "College Football Playoff" will be the name of the new college football playoff system that will start in the 2014-2015 season.

“We decided to call the playoff what it is – the College Football Playoff," Bill Hancock, the Executive Director of the College Football Playoff, said. "We think the new playoff will be the most dynamic improvement to college football in a generation. Certainly it’s what the fans want. We also invite everyone to vote online to select the logo and help us kick off the new College Football Playoff.”

The playoffs will consist of four teams selected by a soon-to-be-announced committee. The national semi-final games will be played at the Sugar Bowl and Rose Bowl on January 1, 2015. The winners of those games will face off 11 days later at a site to be determined on Thursday.

Fans can vote for the logo of the College Football Playoff by going to and selecting one of the four options. The winning logo will be announced April 29.
