Road to College Rugby Round is more live on Wednesday with an announcement from NCAA holds conference with at least 12 members no longer required to decide their soccer champion by dividing its federation into two categories and the winners would compete in a conference championship game.
Removing those restrictions is not a controversial move, and after the latest round of conference reorganization, a move needed for college football. It opens up the possibility of flexible conference scheduling, with the Pac-12 wasting no time, announcing that it will phase out two of its divisions immediately. Southeast Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey said eliminating squads will be a priority as the league expands to 16 teams over the next few years.
The 10-team Big 12 is the only Power Five Conference with no split, with the top two teams overall playing in the conference’s title match in a guaranteed regular rematch. The disappearance of divisions was the end of every other Power Five tournament. There are so many teams around the country that are launching plans to join the elite college football team, whose road to the CFP position has become a lot more difficult. Which teams have appeared in a previous championship game and will not rematch the eliminated teams? Here is our list.
