  1. 1. SREM Mr. Crull
  2. 2. <ul><li>The bowl system is not governed by the NCAA.

  6. 6. <ul><li>There are 10 teams per conference </li></ul><ul><li>Each team plays ALL of the other teams in the conference, plus 3 non-conference games </li></ul><ul><li>There will not be anymore conference championship games to determine champion – based on conference record </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>There are also 4 Relegation Conferences </li></ul><ul><li>Each one of these conferences feeds into 2 of the major conferences </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Appalachian & Great Lakes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Big East & SEC </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pac 10 & Mountain West </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Southwest & Great Plains </li></ul></ul>
