Home Football Big 12 Tiebreaker procedure would give Big 12 'One True Champion'

Tiebreaker procedure would give Big 12 ‘One True Champion’


TCU and Baylor are still pretty peeved about missing out on the College Football Championship, and understandably so.

The lack of a championship system in the Big 12 left both teams–who only had one loss a piece last season–knotted and put to the side. Not to mention ridiculed for being a pair in a conference with the slogan “One True Champion.”

That could finally be remedied, however.

Andy Staples of Sports Illustrated shared the news that the conference is going to implement a tiebreaker procedure so such cases don’t hurt a school’s CFB championship chances in the future.

The new proticol states that, if two teams are tied up at the top of the conference standings at the end of the season that a game will be held to determine the conference winner. It also goes on to detail what should happen if three or more teams have matching records at the end of the season–which gets a bit convoluted, but at least they have all of their bases covered.

Sounds like the Big 12 is really making sure they don’t have a repeat of the 2014 season. At least they won’t be poked at by the rest of the nation for their “One True Champion” banner anymore.
