Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Big 12 Conference has won the right to hold a championship football game without expanding after getting D1 Council approval on Wednesday.Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby released this statement about the about the approved proposal: 

"It is too early to speculate on the impact this will have with our member institutions regarding a football championship game,” commented Bowlsby. “I appreciate that what was acted upon today takes into account our unique 10-team, full round-robin scheduling model.  However, this vote does not automatically mean the Big 12 will implement a football championship game. Our membership will continue to analyze its pros and cons, as we now know the requirements should we decide to go down that path.”

The following was adopted with the Council's vote:
One conference championship football game conducted in either of the following ways:

i) A game between division champions of a member conference that is divided into two divisions (as equally balanced as possible), each of which conducts round-robin, regular-season competition among the members of that division; or,

ii) A game between the top two teams in the conference standings following a full round-robin regular-season schedule of competition among all members of the conference.” 

There's been a lot of feedback throughout the "Twitterphere", so take a look at what people have had to say on the topic:
