Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) -- The Commissioner of the Big 12 conference, Bob Bowlsby, spoke at MSU Moorhead today as part of the DragonFire Walk for Athletics.

Bowlsby wrestled for MSUM and is an alumnus. He's been the Athletic Director at Northern Iowa, Iowa and Stanford, before becoming Big 12 commissioner last year. And although he was against it at first, he had a hand in the newly implemented 4-team College Football Playoff that begins in two years.

Bowlsby says, "I think it will stay at four teams for the forseeable future. I think anything other than that will intrude on the bowl environment in ways we'll be unhappy with. I think we have listened to what the fans want and have put in place a four team playoff that'll be infinitely better than what we had in the past and we've done it while strengthening the bowl environment."
