The Big 12 might try and buy the game and run it themselves. The goal is to have the bowl adequately funded to make sure they can payout teams. The game would be on the same date, however payouts and team picks would be lowered (BE already did this).

The Big 12 meetings have discussed this, the date for the final decision by the NCAA is June 26th.

I didn't know a conference can run a bowl game. So the Big 12 would have the bowl payouts from the teams that make other bowls  and the profit from this game. :)  If the NCAAA approves this then the BE should look into buying a bowl game.

Thats the problem there is no profit from the game, the game is in severe debt. I think the Big 12 buying it is just trying to save it from the dead, I believe they would only have 6 bowl tie ins without it.

Regardless it's a much better city than Birmingham so I'm hoping this works out and shoved Birmingham down the totem pole.

They've never really been faced with this question from what I know. We'll find out June 26th I guess.

^^^^ It's actually sad, but the boosters are talking about booting a president from a top 100 school because of the name of that game. Rule number 1 in the South. Don't F with football
