WASHINGTON (AP) - Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch is calling on the Justice Department to investigate college football's Bowl Championship Series for what he views as violations of antitrust laws.
The top Republican on the Senate subcommittee with antitrust oversight, Hatch made the comment Tuesday after conducting a hearing. He said that it is clear to him whether the BCS is in violation of antitrust laws.
Under the Bowl Championship Series, some conferences get automatic bids to participate while others don't. The automatic bid conferences also get far more of the revenue than the other conferences.
Hatch and other critics of the BCS view that as anticompetitive behavior. Defenders say it simply recognizes the teams people want to watch.
