Government in Control of Everything - Including College Football

We've heard this before, but here it is again, courtesy of a Republican Orrin Hatch (R-UT) who was "steamed" that his team didn't get a chance at the BCS title last year.

This from DOJ Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich:

Several lawmakers and many critics want the BCS to switch to a playoff system, rather than the ratings system it uses to determine the teams that play in the championship game.

"The administration shares your belief that the current lack of a college football national championship playoff with respect to the highest division of college football ... raises important questions affecting millions of fans, colleges and universities, players and other interested parties," Weich wrote.
I understand that the BCS Championship may (or may not) need an overhaul, but do we need an act of Congress to do it?
