I’m eager to hear the tiebreaker formula for the new Pac-12 championship game, starting in 2023.
What happens if two teams tie for second place and have the same winning percentage?
You can’t just go by non-conference records, especially when you look at some teams’ schedules. For example, UCLA plays Bowling Green, Alabama State and South Alabama in 2022.
Will they do it like basketball and start looking at the record vs. the next-best teams? I’m sure it will be a complicated formula. And I’m sure we’ll have some ties too. And that will mean some angry fans.
