An ACC-12 is the missing link in a national football playoff series, replacing the loathed Bowl Championship Series. It would constitute the fifth big-time conference along with the Big 10, Big 12, Southeastern Conference, and PAC-10. It would make sense for the Big 10, which has 11 members, to add a twelfth--Pitt--and for the PAC-10 to recruit two new members from a list including BYU, Utah, Colorado State, and Hawaii.
The conference winner would get a place in the 8-team playoffs and 3 wildcard teams would be added that should include at least one team from a non-major conference. Sound exciting? It does to me.
