NCAA – Power Five Conference Championships (UPDATED)

With the final “regular” season weekend upon us in college football, there are still some teams that are fighting for a berth in their conference championship games.

In the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), the College Football Playoff (CFB) determines the champion after a four-team playoff, whose placement is determined by the CFB rankings. Teams are fighting through the regular season to compete for a berth in the “New Year’s Six” (NY6) bowl games – the Rose Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Orange Bowl, Cotton Bowl, and Peach Bowl – two of which host the national semifinals on a rotating basis (this season’s semifinals are the Cotton Bowl and Orange Bowl, for example).
