The proposed rotation of six bowls that would be used in a four-team college football playoff starting in 2014 could expand to seven, BCS executive director Bill Hancock said Wednesday, according to a report from the Associated Press published on SI.com.
The original four-team playoff proposal, which was passed in June, called for six bowls to rotate among the two semifinal games played prior to the national championship game. The four bowls not hosting one of the semifinal games would host other marquee bowl games pitting highly ranked teams against one another.
After meeting in Rosemont, Ill., over the past few days, conference commissioners are now considering adding another bowl site to the rotation:
"They created a playoff and they had a working concept for access, but they knew that more conversations were needed,'' Hancock said Wednesday, according to the Associated Press. "There was discussion about access and whether another game might be necessary. There was ... but how it comes out, we don't know.''
Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said earlier in the week the rotation could expand to eight bowls.
The Rose Bowl, the Orange Bowl and the Champions Bowl, a newly created contest which pits the Big 12 and SEC champions against each other, have already been accepted into the rotation. The other bowls that will be a part of hosting the four-team playoff have yet to be determined.
