The NCAA Football Postseason Subcommittee has recommended that a one-game national championship game between the nation's top two major college teams be played on the Sunday before the 1989 Super Bowl.
The recommendation for a first-ever NCAA Division 1-A national championship game emerged from a four-member committee headed by Texas Athletic Director DeLoss Dodds. The report will be made in April to the NCAA Football Postseason Committee. It must be approved by that group and the NCAA Council before reaching the NCAA convention.
Dodds said his committee suggests a committee of eight pick the two teams from the bowl winners.
