BCS presidents reject Mountain West playoff plan
Bowl Championship Series presidents have rejected the Mountain West Conference’s playoff plan.
The MWC proposed an eight-team playoff system that would allow greater access to the national championship game to teams outside the six most powerful leagues. The BCS presidential oversight committee rejected the concept during a teleconference on Wednesday.
“There was no overall support for the proposal, although some conferences were interested in considering certain elements of it in the future – particularly those related to revenue, access and governance of the BCS arrangement,” said University of Oregon president David Frohnmayer, the outgoing committee chairman.
