Bowlsby: Plus-one 'inevitable' in college football

NEW YORK (AP) -- Stanford athletic director Bob Bowlsby says the plus-one model in college football is "inevitable."

A panel of ADs at the Intercollegiate Athletics Forum on Wednesday voiced opposition for a large playoff in football's top tier but agreed that a four-team format seemed likely down the road.

Washington's Scott Woodward says he supports the plus-one model and believes it will "eventually" happen.

The panel also included Kansas State's John Currie, UCLA's Dan Guerrero and Syracuse's Daryl Gross.

NCAA President Mark Emmert told reporters after appearing on an earlier panel that he expected changes soon in the BCS automatic qualifier rules after the recent conference realignment.

ESPN executive vice president John Skipper says his network has been happy with the BCS games it televises but "the fan discontent concerns us a bit."
