NCAA Directors Draft Bowl Rules

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ An NCAA oversight panel endorsed a proposal to require football teams to win six games in an 11-game season or seven in a 12-game season to be eligible for postseason bowls.

The Football Study Oversight Committee's endorsement Monday puts it at odds with the NCAA Division I Management Council, which last week approved a measure that would permit a team with just six wins in a 12-game season to go to a bowl.

The NCAA's Board of Directors is scheduled to consider that proposal later this week.

The Football Study Oversight Committee includes eight college presidents, a representative from the Bowl Championship Series and other college and conference representatives.

The panel said it did not concur with the proposal approved by the Management Council. Instead, it endorsed a recommendation from the NCAA's Division I Football Certification Subcommittee.

The oversight panel also requested Monday that legislation be considered to allow a Division I-A school to count a game against an I-AA opponent in a 12-game season for bowl-eligibility purposes.

The panel also recommended that the NCAA hold off from legislating a maximum number of bowl games, and suggested that conferences use an ``open market'' concept to negotiate their bowl opportunities.
