— Get ready for a look at the Big 12’s new round-robin football schedule.

League athletic directors on Wednesday approved a nine-game conference schedule that will pit every team against the other every season, with no need for a championship game.

Big 12 Conference spokesman Bob Burda said future schedules will be released today.

The league has been split into North and South divisions, with six teams in each side and some clubs playing only every other year.

When Colorado (Pac-10) and Nebraska (Big Ten) decided to leave, conference commissioner Dan Beebe began pushing for the new format.

That doesn't make any sense, how can a 10 team league have two divisions of 6? The story needs corrected. So much for ever getting two BCS bids again!
