Attention Florida State and Auburn fans; if you have complaints with the officiating in the BCS National Championship Game on Jan. 6, you can take them up with the Big Ten.

National officiating coordinator Rogers Redding told AL.com on Monday that the Big Ten will provide the officials for the game in Pasadena. The six BCS AQ conferences with have rotated title game duties, though the SEC has not provided officials for the game since 2004 (USC-Oklahoma) because of the conference's eight-year run in the championship game.

Names of the officials working the BCS title game will not be released until the day of the game. 

According to Redding, the College Football Playoff will have a similar rotation for the officials in the semifinals and national championship game. Like the BCS title game, and all other bowl games, officials will not be allowed to work a game involving a team from their own conference.
