The College Football Playoff’s board of managers met on Tuesday in Dallas to explore more into the expansion of the playoff.
The CFP board authorized the management committee to begin a summer review phase that will engage other important voices about expanding the playoff from four teams to 12. This will include many people on campuses, such as student-athletes, athletics directors, faculty athletics representatives, coaches, and university presidents and chancellors.
The board will reconvene in September to discuss what they learned in this phase of the expansion process.
“The ACC appreciates the work by the sub-group of the CFP management committee as we continue the evaluation of future postseason formats. Today’s presentation to the full Board of Managers was an important step in the process, and we now move into the listening and feedback stage. As a league, we look forward to the continued conversations surrounding what’s best for postseason college football, and most importantly, the student-athletes that participate. It’s undeniable how successful the CFP has been since its formation, and it’s important we ensure any future evolutions will only enhance the college football regular season and postseason.”
