Bowl Championship Series Logo

Bowl Championship Series Logo

From 1998 to 2013, the NCAA used the Bowl Championship Series as a way to select and form five bowl game match-ups comprised of ten of the top-ranked teams in the Division I FBS. Later, the College Football Playoff was introduced instead, which started to serve the same purpose.

Meaning and history

There were at least three totally different versions of the Bowl Championship Series logo over its 15-year history. The earliest version was based on a football shape. The football was standing on one of its sharp ends, and the words “Bowl,” “Championship,” “Series” were going from top to bottom, each in a separate line.
