NCAA implements bowl-selection rule favoring 6-6 teams

The NCAA's football oversight committee first made the recommendation for the new rule to the council, following a season that saw only 77 teams eligible for the 80 bowl slots.

In a 113 page document, obtained by CBSSports.com, Tyndall asks the committee to at the very least reduce the penalties because his punishment does not match the precedent set by previous cases.

Lady Vols Head Coach Emeritus Pat Summitt, 64, passed from complications of early onset dementia, according to her family.

The UConn head coach credited Summitt for raising the bar for him and countless other coaches.
