Why would a conference want 15 members particularly when the bylaws

are clear about what is required in order for a conference to play championship game in football? Bowl Subdivision. [FBS] In bowl subdivision football, the maximum number of football contests shall exclude the following: (Revised: 1/10/90, 11/1/07 effective 8/1/08, 10/28/10, 10/27/11 effective 4/1/12, Adopted: 8/2/12 effective 8/1/14, 1/15/16 effective 8/1/16)

(b) Conference Championship Game. One conference championship game:
(1) Between division champions of a conference that is divided into two divisions (as equally balanced in number as possible) and conducts round-robin, regular-season competition in each division; or
(2) Between the top two teams in the conference standings following full round-robin regular-season competition among all members of the conference.

Mathematically a division with 7 and a division with 8 can't play a round robin division schedule and everyone plays the same number of total conference games. The MAC ran into that same problem when it had 13 football members.
