Big 12 prefers playoff with top-4 overall

AP Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Big 12 favors a four-team playoff to decide college football's national champion, and supports some kind of selection committee to determine its participants.

Interim commissioner Chuck Neinas also said the league is content with 10 members after inviting TCU and West Virginia, though he left open the possibility of revisiting expansion.

Neinas spoke after meeting with Big 12 athletic directors Wednesday in Kansas City.

Several configurations of a four-team playoff are being presented at conference meetings around the country. How the teams will be picked is 1 of the items up for debate.

Neinas said "we're in favor of taking the four highest-ranked teams."
