BCS coordinator John Swofford said Friday sponsorships and TV revenue that now go to bowl games would instead be spent on playoff games. He said in prepared testimony that would make it difficult for the oldest and more established bowl games to survive.
Swofford was appearing before the House Energy and Commerce Committee's commerce, trade and consumer protection subcommittee. Several lawmakers on the panel are trying to prod the BCS to switch to a playoff system.
