How are teams selected to compete in the game?When the championship was originally organized, the teams appearing in the championship game were meant to include those with the strongest record against seven of the conference opponents from each division. However, this was modified in August 1999 so that for the initial contest, participation was based solely on the winning record against four divisional opponents only as opposed to all conference teams. This format was only utilized for the first championship game, however, with the SWAC switching back to the initial proposal for subsequent championships.
