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.

1998 – 2005

Bowl Championship Series Logo-1998
The very first Bowl Championship Series logo was designed in 1998 and stayed unchanged for almost seven years. It was a badge based on the vertically oriented rugby ball in dark brown-to-black with the red and gold color palette. The upper part of the crest featured a red ribbon with six small five-pointed stars, while the bottom — with five stars, and the middle one significantly enlarged. In the center of the logo, the golden banner in a red outline was placed. The black custom “Championship” wordmark was written over it, and the “Bowl Series” in all capitals of a bold and simple Sans-serif typeface, was written above and under the banner, in gold, with a thin red shadow.

Bowl Championship Series Logo

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.
