Big Changes in College Football - Could the SEC be next?


The Pac-12 conference has voted to change as to how it will determine the teams that qualify for the Pac-12 Football Championship Game, starting with this upcoming season.

Instead of the North and South division champs meeting, the two teams with the highest conference winning percentage will play in the championship game. An interesting part of this is that this change would have resulted in a different Pac-12 Football Championship matchup in 5 of the last 11 years.

The changes were made when the NCAA Council approved the deregulation of the current rule that limited an individual conference's right to determine who played in their football championship games. Based on a motion brought by the Pac-12 and unanimously supported by all FBS conferences, the NCAA's Football Oversight Committee previously recommended this deregulation to the Division I Council.

So are we seeing a trend in college football? We're hearing buzz about the SEC, ACC and other major conferences working away from divisions and possibly replacing them with pods. Are the other major conferences wanting to buy in to this? With this deregulation from the NCAA Council, this could open up even more changes to wild world that is now college football in the 2020s. What do you think? Let us know!
