If you're keeping a really weird score card, four of the five biggest conferences are now on board with a plus-one game being used to determine the champion at the highest level of college football. The SEC and ACC have supported the idea for years -- though it's reasonable to wonder whether the SEC's changed its mind, now that it can get two teams into the title game this way -- and the Big 12 and Pac-12 have recently joined.
At this year's IMG Intercollegiate Athletics Forum, the Big 12 voted to support the plus-one format, while Stanford athletic director Bob Bowlsby says his conference is ready. And he has "bowls" in his name!
Smaller conferences will support change any way they can get it, leaving one major conference that's yet to throw its weight behind one extra round of college football. At the same conference, Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany lamented that a plus-one would lead to calls for a full college football playoff.
Yes, that would be so very awful.
