BCS changes discussed by panel

November 17, 2003|By BLOOMBERG NEWS

Changes probably are coming to the Bowl Championship Series system, though they won't be made until after the season.

A group of 13 university presidents met yesterday in New Orleans to discuss ways to give lesser-known conferences greater access to the BCS, which was formed in 1998 to crown college football's national champion.

The panel didn't make any changes to the system, which has been called exclusionary and anti-competitive by schools outside the six BCS-member conferences, but agreed to meet again in two to three months to discuss possible alterations.

"We just feel we need to do a lot more discussion with our conference commissioners and presidents and do testing on models we talked about today," Tulane University president Scott Cowen said on a media conference call.
