Report: Pac-12 University Presidents Unite To Campaign Against BCS

Representatives from the Pac-12's member schools agreed in principle yesterday to unite against college football's Bowl Championship Series system, proposing to replace it with a playoff system, reports Craig Harris of the Arizona Republic.

Under the new system being proposed, only conference champions would be eligible to compete for a national championship. This would eliminate the possibility of any future intra-league title clashes such as the one this past season between Alabama and LSU.

"I don't hear anyone saying business as usual is acceptable," said Edward Ray, Oregon State University's president and chairman of the Pac-12 universities' CEO group. "We need change."

The university officials did not take a formal vote yesterday, but they expect to at their next meeting later this year. If the Pac-12 makes a formal recommendation in June, it would come just before the BCS bowls begin to renegotiate their BCS contract renewals late this summer. The BCS contracts expire in early 2014.
