College Football Playoff To Consider Proposal For 12-Team Format

The College Football Playoff is confirming it may expand to a 12 team format. The committee is recommending the playoff include the six highest-ranked conference champions and the six remaining highest-ranked teams determined by the CFP selection committee. The four highest-ranked conference champions would get a first-round bye and be seeded one through four.

The other teams would play each other in a format that mirrors March Madness. That includes the five-seed playing the 12-seed and number six playing number eleven. The higher seeds would also host the games.
