This will be the last season for the Crystal Football Trophy

Posted: Updated:

2013 is the final season for the BSC, and we found out today there'll be no more Crystal Football Trophy.

The College Football Playoffs start in 2014 and with it will be the death of the iconic crystal football. Executive director Bill Hancock says there'll be a new trophy for the playoffs.  

The $30,000 Waterford crystal has been a staple of college football since 1986.

Also announced today the six bowls that make up the College Football Playoff semifinal rotation will be known as the "New Year's Six".

Those six bowls are the Sugar Bowl, Rose Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Orange Bowl, and Chick-fil-a Bowl. These bowls will serve in a three year rotation.

Will Alabama win the last crystal ball? How do you feel about the football going away? What about the New Year's Six? Let us know on Facebook!
