NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Bowl Championship Series remains “deeply troubled” by the scandal that has plagued the Fiesta Bowl this spring, though they are impressed by bowl chairman Duane Woods’ reform-minded approach.

Executive director Bill Hancock says spirited discussion at the organization’s annual meetings on Thursday covered a range of possible consequences for the Fiesta Bowl. He says removal of the Phoenix-area game from the BCS lineup remains one of many possibilities.

Hancock says he can’t reveal specifics about the discussions because a task force examining the Fiesta Bowl’s financial and political improprieties has more work to do.

Woods, meanwhile, says his meeting with NCAA bowl licensing officials on Thursday went well.
