"We are allowing the best teams in the country to determine a national champion on the football field, and as a coach, that's what you want," Stoops said. "Our student-athletes, our universities, college football and the fans are all winners in this new playoff format. "I've long advocated the many positives of maintaining the bowl system as part of the postseason. I'm very pleased that student-athletes competing for a national championship will still get to enjoy the rich part of college football's tradition that is that week-long bowl experience. To me, this decision further enhances the importance of our regular season games, and is good for college football and our student-athletes all the way around."
