Playoff boss: Big 12 smart to hold off on adding title game
DALLAS (AP) College Football Playoff Executive Director Bill Hancock says the Big 12 is ''smart to sit back and wait'' over adding a conference championship game.
Hancock said Tuesday at Big 12 media days that there was ''no question'' Ohio State benefited by winning the Big Ten championship over Wisconsin in a blowout that vaulted the Buckeyes into the inaugural four-team playoff. Ohio State beat Oregon for the national title.
Hancock said different outcomes in title games could have put both Baylor and TCU in the playoff, and Big 12 leaders ''would have looked like a roomful of geniuses.''
