The BCS has reached a consensus on a new four-team seeded playoff system that will re-shape how college football's annual national champion is crowned, as Brett McMurphy of CBS Sports reports. Talks about changing the format of college football's postseason have gone on for years, but it finally appears that progress is being made.

With the BCS meetings going down at the Chicago Intercontinental Hotel on Wednesday, fans may finally see changes that have been requested for a while now. College football's national championship system has been one of the most controversial postseason formats in all of sports, making this major news for everyone in the game.

Any alterations to the postseason format won't be made official until the BCS Presidential Oversight Committee meets in Washington, D.C., on June 26. More than one kind of playoff model will be presented to the committee, which could have the new system in place by 2014.
