NEW YORK (AP) -The Mountain West Conference has presented the BCS with a proposal to create an eight-team playoff in major college football that would allow greater access to teams outside the six most powerful leagues.
Commissioner Craig Thompson and four university leaders from the MWC announced details of the proposal Wednesday on a conference call.
The call for change comes after a season in which MWC champion Utah was the only unbeaten major team but was never seriously in the running to play in the BCS national title game.
The conferences with automatic access to five BCS games are the Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, SEC, ACC and Pac-10.
Florida beat Oklahoma in the BCS title game; the Utes finished No. 2 after beating Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.
