OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby says the conference has no immediate plans to hold a football championship game, though he wants that option.
Bowlsby spoke Wednesday at a function for Oklahoma State's Spears School of Business. He says the television ratings and attendance at other conference championship games would indicate that such an event might not be such a wise idea for the Big 12 at this point.
Bowlsby said late last month the league will seek permission from the NCAA to be able to hold a title game, even though the Big 12 does not have the 12 members now required to do so.
Bowlsby says he's also spoken with conference presidents and athletic directors about beefing up nonconference football schedules.
