The crystal football awarded to the winner of the BCS National Championship Game is reportedly on its way out the door -- just like the BCS itself.

Chuck Carlton of the Dallas Morning News reports that College Football Playoff executive director Bill Hancock confirmed that the impending playoff format will feature a new championship trophy. The BCS is set to end after the 2013 season, while the new College Football Playoff system will begin with the 2014 season.
