The Big 12 plans to ask the NCAA to revisit a rule preventing a 10-team league from playing a conference championship game, Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby tells CBSSports.com. The league has had preliminary talks with the NCAA and "I expect that we will make that request" formally, Bowlsby said. The 10-team Big 12 plays a round-robin schedule, and though the league doesn't currently have plans to add a title game, it's making this request based on principle and future flexibility.
