Even if the NCAA did reduce the number of regular season games

to 11, schools would still want to play 7 home games every year. So quality regular season games could be reduced because conferences decide to add other G5 schools (i.e. UConn, Cincy, Army, Navy, etc) to the list of schools that count towards the P5 requirement. On the bright side the ACC could decide that Liberty, ECU, and ODU now count towards the P5 requirement. I am sure Babcock would take advantage of the announcement to enter into a 20 year home-home series with those schools. ;-)

Also, ESPN and the other networks would want the NCAA to continue with the various preseason kickoff games so a select few teams have a 12th game. Plus, teams would still be allowed to play a 12th game if 1 of their other regular season games is played @Hawai'i, in Alaska (neutral site game), and I believe in Puerto Rico (neutral site game). At least it wouldn't surprise me if school start to get creative to try to circumvent the rules in order to play a 12th regular season game.
