IRVING, Texas - Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby says he believes the conference will move toward having a championship football game because not having one puts it at a disadvantage when it comes placing teams in the College Football Playoff.
Bowlsby says he spoke with selection committee chairman Jeff Long this week during the College Football Playoff meetings in North Texas and came away convinced not having a conference championship game to end the season will continue to be a problem for the league.
The Big 12 is the lone Big Five conference that has only 10 teams and does not have a title game. Baylor and TCU tied for the Big 12 title last season, but were both jumped by Ohio State in the final playoff committee rankings.
