So with an eight-game schedule still likely, how will it work? The committee is down to two or three formats. One of them, which has the most traction, is a 6-1-1- format (six division games, one cross-division rivalry, and one floating non-division game) where a home-and-home series doesn't have to happen in consecutive years. For instance, if Georgia goes to Alabama in 2013 then Alabama doesn't have to come back to Georgia in 2014. (And I'm not reporting Georgia and Alabama are playing in 2013. That's just an example.)
