DESTIN, FL (AP) - The Southeastern Conference wrapped up its annual spring meetings Friday with very little resolution regarding future football schedules.
School presidents and chancellors delayed a decision about potentially moving to a nine-game league schedule. As expected, they agreed that 2014 and 2015 slates will follow the current 6-1-1 model, with teams playing six division opponents, one permanent, cross-division rival and one rotational game against the remaining six teams.
The SEC might switch to a nine-game schedule in 2016. If so, the league would join the Big Ten, the Pac-12 and the Big 12.
The SEC also announced a record payout of approximately $289.4 million for the 2012-13 fiscal year, giving each school $20.7 million. That number is expected to rise significantly in two years, after the launching of the SEC Network.
