Conferences' calls with committee coming up
The second of three informational calls between members of the playoff selection committee and officials from each FBS conference are scheduled to be held this week.
Two members of the 12-person committee have been assigned to be point people for each conference. Former Lieutenant General Mike Gould and former Nebraska coach Tom Osborne are the point people for the Pac-12.
Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said Saturday night the calls are a chance for the conference to give the committee a full picture of what's going on within a league.
Scott says the conferences provide committee members with stats and injury information.
''Anything they need to know about any personnel issues that might have impacted particular results. Our own view of how our teams are stacking and the way they're trending,'' he said.
He says College Football Playoff executive director Bill Hancock has set guidelines for communication between conferences and the committee and how the calls should be structured.
''Not lobbying,'' he said. ''Just making sure they fully understand all that there is to appreciate about the Pac-12 Conference.''
The conferences will get one more call with its designated committee members before the final rankings that will set the field for the four-team playoff come out on Dec. 7.
