Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott and Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany believe it's time for the NCAA model to change and for autonomy to be given to the five major football conferences.
The Pac-12 is moving its conference championship game to the San Francisco 49ers' new stadium in Santa Clara for the next three years.

College football is headed toward a new era, with a four-team playoff deciding the champion starting in 2014.

Scott said he doesn't expect much pushback on the issue from schools in small and mid-major conferences.
"The letter represents a sense of urgency that our presidents have," Scott said. "But maybe more importantly, our desire to be really, really clear about what we want to see happen. And we want to make sure that we have alignment among conferences. We don't want to go through this governance reform process and get autonomy and wake up and find out in January that not everyone agrees. We want to know now. And we want to tell the world now what we want to do."
