"Alabama Coach Nick Saban thinks it would be better if the regular season was more balanced from a competitive standpoint. Last year because of COVID-19 the SEC played a 10-game regular season schedule, all conference games. It worked.
Saban has advocated a nine-game conference schedule in the past and in recent years has upped the challenge to a 10-game conference schedule with the remaining games against other Power Five opponents. The SEC reverts to an eight-game league schedule this year, leaving room for three or four cupcakes for most teams."
"Bama, however, isn’t likely to go all Power Five unilaterally. If it happens throughout the Power Five, however, no one could complain about the national championship field, regardless of the number of teams."
