College Football: What a 4 Superconference Model Would Look Like

With Texas A&M and Missouri set to begin play in the SEC this fall and TCU and West Virginia's defection to the Big 12, it seems inevitable that conference realignment won't end with these major moves.

The Big East is in serious trouble of collapsing, the ACC is scrambling to get long-term commitments from its members, the Big 12 is drooling over the prospect of regaining the right to host a conference championship game, and the SEC, Big Ten, and Pac-12 are sitting back, waiting to see what happens next.

Beyond the current BCS Automatic Qualifiers, Boise State and Nevada have left the WAC for the Mountain West, and BYU has gone independent. There's also the addition of four new FBS programs for 2012 (Texas State, Texas-San Antonio, South Alabama, and Massachusetts).

From the beginning of the conference realignment (Colorado and Nebraska leaving the Big 12), there's been talk of creating four “superconferences” in college football, helping along the notion of a true national championship at season's end.

What would this model look like and how would it function? Who would be invited to join and who would be left out?

Here's our glimpse into the future with a four superconference model for college football.
