Harvey Perlman obviously commands the respect of many in the college football world.

Another example: The Nebraska chancellor has been named chairman of the 12-member Bowl Championship Series (BCS) Presidential Oversight Committee, succeeding Virginia Tech President Charles W. Steger, whose term is expiring.

"Harvey Perlman cares deeply about college football and will help guide us as we usher in the new playoff structure. We appreciate his continued leadership,” said Bill Hancock, executive director of the BCS and the new playoff, in a prepared statement.

The Presidential Oversight Committee, which includes a university president or chancellor representing each Football Bowl Subdivision conference and the University of Notre Dame, manages the BCS with particular focus on policy, format, revenue distribution, and contractual obligations.

The group announced last year that the new college football playoff format would begin with the 2014-2015 season, giving itself adequate time to transition from the current system.
