CHICAGO (AP) -- Big Ten administrators would prefer a plus-one
system over a four-team playoff to determine a national champion if
the status quo can't be maintained.
In the plus-one format, the bowl games would be played, and then
the top two teams would meet for the national championship.
Nebraska chancellor Harvey Perlman says conference presidents
would choose to keep the system in place if there were a vote
today. But he says "we're also realistic" and that change appears
to be inevitable.
Perlman spoke on a conference call Monday, a day after Big Ten
administrators met at the league's suburban Chicago headquarters.
