NEW YORK (AP) -- The only things standing in the way of a major college football playoff are 12 university presidents.

They figure to be more of a speed bump than a road block.

The BCS commissioners will present their four-team playoff proposal to the presidential oversight committee Tuesday in Washington.

The committee is headed by Virginia Tech's Charles W. Steger, and includes one university leader from each of the 11 major football conferences, and Notre Dame.

Whether approval will come quickly or the presidents will take some time to mull over the proposal, maybe toss it back for tweaks, is unknown. But it is safe to say the men who have spent hours upon hours hashing this out over the last six months believe their bosses will approve of their work.
