But in 2005 only one selection made through non-BCS affiliated conference for the 2006 season game and known as BCS National Championship Game. This opened the way for the selection made by BCS and selection increased time to time. In 2009 first time two schools from Non-BCS conference played against each other in a game of BCS.
In the development of American football the name of Walter camp is considered to be more important and known by the Father of American Football.
