College Football Playoff Confirms Possible Expansion To 12 Teams

(Irving, TX) -- The College Football Playoff is thinking of expanding to a 12 team format in the future.  

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.
