NCAA Power Conference

NCAA Power Conference

Aug 8, 2014 at 7:09 am

The NCAA Board of Directors has overwhelmingly approved a package of historic reforms that will give the nation's five biggest conferences the ability to unilaterally change some of the basic rules governing college sports.
 
     If the 16-2 decision stands, there will be striking differences between the 65 largest schools and the more than 280 others in Division I beginning as early as Oct. 1, though few expect change to come that quickly.
 
     Representatives the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC will hold nearly twice as much voting power as any other group on a newly created council, where most legislation will be approved or rejected.
 
     The legislation still could be overridden in the next 60 days.
