BIG 12 AD'S EXPECTED TO PROPOSE A FOOTBALL PLAYOFF GAME
Published May 17, 1995
The athletic directors for the Big 12 are expected to propose a football championship game in their last day of meetings today, "despite the fact" that conference coaches "are unanimous in their opposition" to such a game, according to this morning's FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM. Wendell Barnhouse reports that the proposal would then be forwarded to the conferences' school presidents for approval in June. The game is expected to bring as much as $40M in revenue to the conference, something that would be "hard to turn down," according to Texas A&M AD Wally Groff. Bids for the game have been made by Texas Stadium, Dallas' Cotton Bowl, San Antonio's Alamodome, Denver's Mile High Stadium, Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, and the new domed stadium in St. Louis (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 5/17).
