Big 12 unlikely to have football title game in ’16

IRVING, Texas (AP) – The Big 12 is unlikely to stage a football championship game this year though the NCAA approved a plan last month that would allow the 10-team league to do so.

Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby says data presented to league athletic directors Thursday pose questions about whether the league has a better chance to get into the four-team College Football Playoff without a championship game than it would with one.

There were no votes or any formal action taken by athletic directors on a championship game, possible expansion or a league-wide television network.

Bowlsby described the four-hour meeting as mostly "high-level discussions."

The ADs met a day before a meeting of the league’s board of directors made up of school presidents and chancellors.
