Default What happens to the "BCS bowls" next year....

Will they be hand tied like they have been since the creation of the BCS or can they "go after" who they want irregardless of conference membership? Will the "Automatic Qualifier" and "At-Large" monikers be a thing of the past with the new "playoff" system??

Na.

Conferences still have their tie ins when the games aren't used in the playoff.
Also the highest ranked champion of the "non-BCS conference" will have to go to one of those bowls next year (any conference but the SEC, ACC, Big 10, PAC 12 and Big 12)

From Wiki:

The four-team bracket will pit the No. 1-ranked team against No. 4 and No. 2 vs. No. 3. The selection committee will seed the two semifinal games to prevent the top two seeds from playing in a "road" environment. There will be no limits on the number of teams per conference, in a change from previous BCS rules.[3] Bowl selections will not be determined by conference "automatic qualifier" berths, as used in the BCS, though there will be conference tie-ins for certain non-semifinal bowl games along with an annual guaranteed spot for a mid-major representative.[6]

In years when the bowls are not part of the playoff bracket, the highest-ranked non-playoff teams from the following conferences or groups will be selected as follows:[22]

Rose Bowl Big Ten #1 vs. Pac-12 #1
Sugar Bowl SEC #1 vs. Big 12 #1
Orange Bowl ACC #1 vs. SEC #2, Big Ten #2, or Notre Dame
Cotton Bowl at-large or "Group of Five"
Fiesta Bowl at-large or "Group of Five"
Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl at-large or "Group of Five"

The four BCS bowls plus the new play-off bowls (Atlanta & Cotton) will replace the BCS bowls. The six will rotate hosting the semifinals each year and the selection committee will pair another eight teams in the remaining bowls. The committee will vote and publish a top 25 and the top 4 will be in the playoff. Of the remaining teams all conference champs make a big bowl, the highest ranked champion from a non-contract conference, and the remaining spots go to the highest ranked non champion teams. That essentially means that if we are in the top 10 we get a bid to one of the big 6 bowls.

From the playoff site,
http://www.collegefootballplayoff.com/

It is planned that the selection committee will rank 25 teams. If no champion of a non-contract conference is among that group of 25 teams, then the committee will rank additional teams.
Metrics

No one single metric will be identified as paramount over all other data.
Assigning Teams to Semifinal Sites

When assigning the games to the semifinals sites, the committee will place the top seeds at the most advantageous sites, weighing criteria such as convenience of travel for its fans, home-crowd advantage or disadvantage and general familiarity with the host city and its stadium.
Meeting Schedule

The committee will meet in person beginning at mid-season and will meet several times to produce interim rankings before selection weekend each season. The interim rankings will be made public. It will meet again during selection weekend to decide the final rankings and announce the pairings.
Pairings for the Playoff Games
  • In the playoff, the team ranked No. 1 by the selection committee will play team No. 4 in the semifinals. Team No. 2 will play team No. 3.
  • There will be no limit on the number of teams that may participate from one conference, and matters such as rematches will not be a consideration.
Pairings for Non-Playoff Bowls
  • All displaced conference champions and the highest ranked champion from a non-contract conference, as ranked by the committee, will participate in selected other bowl games and will be assigned to those games by the committee. If berths in the selected other bowl games remain available after those teams have been identified, the highest ranked other teams, as ranked by the committee, will fill those berths in rank order. (Note: A "displaced conference champion" is a champion of a contract-bowl conference that does not qualify for the playoff in a year when its contract bowl hosts a semifinal game.)
  • The committee will strive to provide the most compelling matchups in the bowl games.
  • There will be no limit on the number of teams that are allowed to participate from a conference.
  • The committee will use geography as a consideration in the pairing of teams and assigning them to bowl sites, but not in the ranking of teams.
  • The committee will attempt to avoid regular-season rematches when assigning teams to these non-playoff bowl games.
  • To benefit fans and student-athletes, the committee will attempt to avoid assigning a particular team or group of teams to the same bowl game repeatedly.
  • Conference championships will be a criteria to be considered when the committee assigns teams to bowls (i.e., if Dallas were a convenient site for two teams, preference would go to a conference champion.)
