The Pac-12 has been at the forefront of whatever college football postseason movement has surged forth in the past year. The Pac-12 is at the forefront of most things, via it's in the future already. So it's little surprise to see the conference's residents have informally agreed among themselves that the BCS must be replaced.
What emerged, according to [Oregon State president Edward] Ray and [Arizona State president Michael] Crow, was consensus that the current BCS system needs to significantly change and that it should be replaced by a playoff system that may or may not include current BCS bowl members, including the Valley's Fiesta Bowl.
The Pac-12's primary concern with the whole thing is making sure the Rose Bowl still means something even after the creation of a playoff to replace the BCS. The Big Ten's main worry is the same.
Dignitaries from Stanford and elsewhere around the Pac-12 had already situated themselves on #TeamPlayoff as the BCS' clock winds down. With the Big Ten and Big 12 also seemingly in favor, and the SEC only tentatively objecting to the home field advantage portion of the current popular proposal, we're getting closer by the week to some sort of general agreement on ... something.
