We are at the mid-point of the week and with it comes the latest links pertaining to the Mountain West Conference and college sports in general. Check out what is coming your way today as the links press on.
A look into Hawaii’s new home.
The Hawaii football team recently provided some updates on the makeshift emergency renovations to convert the TC Ching complex into a football stadium for at least the next two seasons. It will have the capacity of just 5,000, well below the 15,000 the NCAA requirement for FBS programs, although they could file a waiver.
2021 MWC games on Stadium.
News broke on Monday that some of the conference’s football games will be broadcasted and streamed over Stadium and their linear and owned cable channels. This could be the wave of the future, or maybe not. Either way, 10 MWC football games will be seen, there in 2021.
CFP is moving forward, with a warning.
The college football playoff committee officially proposed their 12 team playoff model as part of a presentation. There will now be a summer review to hear feedback from coaches, ADs, presidents, and players. Perhaps the most important piece was the mentioning of the existing bowl contracts, which will likely keep any new playoff model from occurring in the next few years, as the contracts run through 2026.
