“The legends, not too hard in that we have 215 College Football Hall of Fame members, we have 15 Heisman Trophy winners,” said Commissioner Jim Delany in an exclusive interview with The Associated Press. “We thought that it was logical to recognize the iconic and legendary through the designation of the division in this regard. … We had great leaders at the conference, for sure, but the focus here is to recognize the mission of the use of intercollegiate athletics and higher education to build future leaders. ”
With Nebraska to become the 12th team in the conference next year, the conference has created new divisions that it introduced in September.
