    If Big 12 folds, MWC may become BCS conference.

    Here are rules:

    Standards for future BCS automatic qualification
    Under the terms of the agreements with the bowls and television rightsholder, the ACC, Big East, Big 10, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC will have annual automatic qualification for their champions for the 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons.

    Results from the 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 regular seasons will be evaluated to determine whether a seventh conference earns automatic qualification for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 bowl games.

    The process is as follows:

    * The evaluation includes the following for each conference

    (1) Average Ranking of Highest-Ranked Team, the ranking of the highest-ranked team in the final BCS Standings each year (if a conference does not place a team in the final BCS Standings, then its highest-ranked team is determined by the conference member that has the highest average ranking in the computer rankings used in the BCS Standings),

    (2) Average Conference Ranking, the final regular-season rankings of all conference teams in the computer rankings used by the BCS each year, and

    (3) Top 25 Performance Ranking, the number of teams in the top 25 of the final BCS Standings each year, with adjustments to account for differences in the number of members of each conference.

    A conference will become the seventh automatic qualifier if it finishes among the top six conferences in both No. 1 and No. 2 and if its ranking in No. 3 is equal to or greater than 50 percent of the conference with the highest ranking in No. 3.

    * Further, a conference will be eligible to apply to the Presidential Oversight Committee for an exemption if it finishes among the top six in both No. 1 and No. 2 and if its ranking in No. 3 is equal to or greater than 33.3 percent of the conference with the highest ranking in No. 3, OR

    If it finishes among the top seven in either No. 1 or No. 2 and among the top five in the other and if its ranking in No. 3 is equal to or greater than 33.3 percent of the conference with the highest ranking in No. 3.

    No. 3 above, the "Top 25 Performance Rating," will be calculated as follows: Points will be awarded to the conferences based on their teams' finishes in the top 25 of the final BCS Standings each year. Points will be awarded as follows:

    Teams finishing 1-6: 4 points for each team Teams finishing 7-12: 3 points for each team Teams finishing 13-18: 2 points for each team Teams finishing 19-25: 1 point for each team

    The point totals will be adjusted to account for the size of the conference, as follows:

    Conference membership | Adjustment

    12 or more member | no adjustment

    10 or 11 members | points increased by 12.5 percent

    9 or fewer members | points increased by 25 percent

    * The computations will be made according to the conference's membership on Dec. 4, 2011.

    If the BCS continues under the same or a similar format, conferences will be evaluated on their performances during the 2010 to 2013 regular seasons to determine which conferences without bowl contracts will have automatic qualification for the bowls that will conclude the 2014-2017 regular seasons.

    Key question - it says it uses conference membership as of Dec. 4, 2011. Does that mean if a team has committed to another conference, are they considered member of old conference or new conference.

    MWC. Home of the BCS. What a novelty.

    That doesn't mean that they will get a big time tv conference, which is really what matters.

    It's whatever conference the team is in as of that date.

    NU and CU were officially in the Big 12 on June 30, 2011, and then in their new conferences on July 1 despite having made the official moving declaration a year prior.
