    With the signing of the deal between the SEC and Big 12 to play in a bowl, both the ACC and Big East are on the outside looking in. While the Big East won't be confused for a powerhouse conference anytime soon, the ACC is a whole different story. With Miami, FSU, Virginia Tech and potentially Clemson, they are easily a sleeping giant and could upset the four power conference model we see today (Pac-12, Big-10, Big-12, and SEC).

    It is easy to see how a bowl matchup of the Big-10 and the Pac-12 and SEC with the Big-12 can represent a simple playoff model if the winner of those games were to go on an play another game, essentially a college super bowl. In most cases the winner in that game would be the undisputed national champion and the game would bring enormous viewership and revenue, possibly rivaling on the NFL's super bowl. With viewership of over 110 million people and ad revenue that exceeds $4 million per 30 seconds, the media rights for that single game are extremely lucrative and even a fraction of that revenue can be a windfall to the BCS. If a college bowl game can make $100 million in ad revenue would the BCS rethink the current formula.

    What would an undefeated ACC team, especially Miami, FSU or Virginia Tech, do to this model? Would this obstacle force conferences to go to 16 teams in order to have four true power conferences?

    Would you give up on the PAC-12 and go to 16 teams, possibly adding Texas and Oklahoma in order to have a playoff model and a super bowl?

    I haven't been following this at all. Can someone briefly explain how the big 12 and sec signed a deal when it seems pretty obvious that the pac 12 and big 10 have wanted to have the game guaranteed in the rose bowl and were unable to get an agreement?

    No. If we must be at 16, I'm at some combo of BYU/AFA/SDSU/UNM/BSU and KU and KSU. There is no one we can add at this point that won't dilute the pot, but at least the Kansas schools could bring KC and arguably St. Louis. The Big Suck can then take a couple of the relevant ACC teams they have already been flirting with.

    I dont think the scenario is that far fetched. How much would a college super bowl have to bring to a conference before things change? 50 million? 75? At some point these conferences might have to change.
