    Champions Bowl to require Big 12 Champ game?

    CBS Sports is reporting the agreement for the Champions Bowl between the Big 12 and SEC requires a Championship game for each conference. The rules may have been written with some assumptions that won't happen, but interesting nontheless. (would be need by 2014)

    Re: Champions Bowl to require Big 12 Champ game?

    (Not that I'm opposed to going to 12) I was under the assumption the Champions Bowl only takes place if neither the SEC nor the Big 12 have a team in the 4-team playoff. Since this game is probably never going to take place based on the assumed criteria, I don't see how the Big 12 not having a championship game is an issue.

    I'm starting to think that this thing was hastily put together.

    If either or both conferences have a team in the playoffs, the next place team plays in the Champions Bowl. It happens every year, regardless of the playoffs.

    I want more teams anyway, so this would be a good development. If they can latch onto 2 strong programs, I'm all for it.

    This has already pretty much been debunked.

    cbs sports is not reporting that.

    Re: Champions Bowl to require Big 12 Champ game?

    I was digging around CBSSports and I can't find this reported anywhere on there (like CrossCyd).


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Since I like the story, I don't care if it's fictional. I am going to proceed with my life as if it were real.
