DENVER (AP) - The new college football postseason system will have six games as originally planned, but now a spot in the marquee bowls will be reserved for the best team from a group five conferences that includes the Big East.
The tweak to the postseason format that will start in 2014 was made Monday during a meeting of conference commissioners and university presidents.
In September, a proposal was put forth to add a seventh game to the format that would match the best team from the Big East, Mountain West, Conference USA, Sun Belt and Mid-American Conference against a team from the Pac-12 or Big 12.
But ultimately that plan was dumped, and instead an automatic spot was created to give those conferences access to the top games.
