Per BR: After playing the last five years without a conference championship game, the Big 12 will bring it back after winning an NCAA vote. Brian Davis of the Austin American-Statesman reported Wednesday that the NCAA vote granted the Big 12 its right to stage a title game featuring the top two teams in the conference during the regular season. The vote was not unanimous, as Dan Wolken of USA Today reported the ACC and American Athletic Conference voted against this version of the Big 12 Championship Game, with the ACC seeking full deregulation of the current system. Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby told Davis the conference "ended up with a compromise we can live with." However, per Davis, Bowlsby did not seem enthusiastic about this solution by noting the title game "guarantees an automatic rematch from the regular season." Now, the Big 12 has earned the right to bring back its title game in the hopes of making sure a situation like 2014 doesn't have to happen again. The committee can keep the conference's top team fresh in its mind when debating which teams deserve to compete for a national championship.
