The goal for every team in college football is the same, win all of it's games and play for the BCS National Championship. Those goals will change for teams beginning in 2014, when the new playoff system is unveiled, allowing four teams to compete for the title.
However, the new playoff format won't mean the end of traditional bowl games. In fact, some people believe the bowls can still thrive, remaining an integral part of college football.
Wright Waters stopped in Dothan on Tuesday, speaking to the Dothan-Houston County Rotary Club. Waters is the Executive Director of the College Football Bowl Association.
He says bowl games aren't going anywhere, if the people in charge of the games keep a few things in mind.
"There's always going to be a place for the bowls, as long as the bowls keep it an event and don't let it just become a game," Waters said. "When we sit down the executive directors of the bowls, that's the thing we keep in front of us.
"It's got to be an event. It's got to be a reward."
There will be 35 bowl games played this year, beginning on December 15th in New Mexico, and wrapping up on January 7th with the BCS Championship Game in Miami.
