NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- BCS officials are open to making big changes to college football's postseason format, including implementing a four-team playoff.

The commissioners from the 11 FBS conferences met Tuesday to exchange ideas about what the system for crowning a national champion will be starting in the 2014 season. BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock says 50 to 60 possibilities for various changes were presented.

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott says ideas were not "ranked" or "eliminated."

Hancock says the process will be deliberate, and he expects it will take between five and seven meetings before July 4 to come to a decision.

A new BCS format must be in place before the fall when television negotiations with ESPN open.
