Major changes are on the way for the College Football Playoff. Friday, the College Football Playoff Board of Managers voted in favor of expanding the CFP from four teams to 12. The CFP committee which is comprised of the 10 FBS commissioners will continue to oversee the expansion process. The board’s vote was a large step towards implementing a format that was initially proposed in 2021.
The expansion to a 12 team playoff could take place as soon as 2024. The terms of the proposal include granting automatic bids to the six conference champions. In addition, the format will allow annual access to at least one group of five team. First round byes will be rewarded to the nation’s top four conference champions which will be determined by the CFP rankings.
With the playoff expansion finally gaining ground, debate is arising over whether or not the new format will be good for the sport. Many people have different perspectives on how many teams should be included in the CFP. It seems that people have argued for the number to be anywhere from four all the way to 16. Time will tell if the 12 team CFP format will be a success.
