Since BIG and PAC12 are playing in the spring, what about this

Bowl game promoters should look to set up some bowl games in the spring. Not a lot of sports activity in late March except for March Madness and early April with The Masters. Simply have the bowl games on Sunday night, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays during March Madness. Great collegiate mixture. I think ratings would be high enough to make some profit for ESPN and the schools

Example of potential Bowl matchups. Rose Bowl could have two games, one in January and then one in April with

PAC1 vs BIG1

other bowls having PAC vs BIG games, with mid majors mixed in with something like this:

PAC5 vs MW 1
BIG5 vs MAC1
BIG6 vs SB 1
PAC7 vs MAC2
BIG7 vs MW2
then lower finishing mids can be set up to play each other.

No National Championship, but some bowls to play for. Make lemonade out of lemons at least.

It might even be possible to have fans in April, so they could potentially come out better than the SEC/ACC/Big 12, especially if they can't have fans at bowl games.
