BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Conference USA Commissioner Britton Banowsky says the current climate in college football favors "meaningful change" to the BCS, not just a tweak.

The Southeastern Conference's Mike Slive adds there are several proposed changes to the current system, but says, "we're all trying to do what's good for college football."

Slive ane Banowsky were among four collegiate conference chiefs who spoke Monday at an Associated Press Sports Editors regional meeting.

Also participating were retiring Sun Belt Commissioner Wright Waters and Atlantic Sun Commissioner Ted Gumbart.

The commissioners discussed a range of issues from conference expansion to ongoing efforts to change the system for naming college football's national champion.

BCS leaders are scheduled to meet again April 24-26 in Hollywood, Fla., when the Football Bowl Association holds its annual meetings.
