Slive: BCS 2-team conference limit reconsidered

September 27, 2011 - 4:30 PM

Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive says he expects the BCS executive director to ask the commissioners to consider lifting the two-team per conference limit in the Bowl Championship Series.

Slive was speaking on a teleconference with Texas A&M President R. Bowen Loftin to reporters about the Aggies move to the SEC. Slive was asked about the possibility of the BCS changing its rules to allow more than two teams from a conference to play in the five most lucrative bowl games in a given year.

He said BCS executive director Bill Hancock had a number of issues he was going ask the commissioners of the 11 major college football conferences to address, and anticipates the two-team limit to be a topic.
