Football is Back!

College Football…. A New Format!

PLAYOFFS!

No More Computer Rankings!

No More Which Teams Play in…

What Bowl Game & Championship!

New Format… Simple!

Best Four Teams.. end of Season!

To… Two Semi-Finals in Bowl Games!

To… A Championship Game!

Biggest Innovation in Decades in

College Football!

Every Game Counts Now During… College Season!

Here is How Your New College Football Playoffs will be Played….

Best of All Worlds
The new postseason structure creates an exciting four-team playoff that preserves the best regular season in sports and protects America’s rich bowl tradition. It does not go too far; it goes just the right distance and respects the academic calendar while limiting the number of games played by student-athletes.

A New Year’s Spectacular
Fans will enjoy back-to-back triple headers. Two semifinals and four other premier bowl games will be played on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Those holidays will belong to college football. Semifinal games will rotate among six different bowls, extending the experience to more fans.

Championship Monday
The championship game will be on Monday night every year.

Universal Access
Every FBS team has equal access to the playoff based on its performance. No team will qualify automatically.

More Revenue
The popularity of the new format will increase revenue for all conferences and independent institutions.

The FBS Conferences Manage the College Football Playoff
The FBS conferences manage the College Football Playoff. All 10 conferences are members of the new entity–CFP Administration, LLC. University presidents and chancellors from all 10 conferences and Notre Dame form the Board of Managers and govern the administrative operations, with commissioners (the Management Committee) managing the event with guidance from an advisory group of athletics directors. A small staff in the playoff office in Irving, Texas, carries out the detailed responsibilities.

Selection Committee
A talented group of high-integrity individuals with experience as coaches, student-athletes, collegiate administrators and journalists, along with sitting athletics directors, comprise the selection committee. The group will create rankings seven times each year. The members of the selection committee are: Jeff Long (chair), Barry Alvarez, Mike Gould, Pat Haden, Tom Jernstedt, Oliver Luck, Archie Manning, Tom Osborne, Dan Radakovich, Condoleezza Rice, Mike Tranghese, Steve Wieberg and Tyrone Willingham.

Selection Committee Responsibilities
Select the top four teams for the playoff, rank them and assign them to semifinal sites.
Rank the next group of teams to play in other New Year’s bowls if berth are available.
Select the highest-ranked champion from the five conferences without New Year’s bowl contracts.
Assign teams to New Year’s bowls
Create competitive matchups
Attempt to avoid rematches of regular-season games and repeat appearances
Consider geography
Participants in the New Year’s Bowls
Both participants in the Orange, Rose and Sugar Bowls are contracted outside the playoff arrange­ment (Big Ten and Pac-12 to Rose Bowl; SEC and Big 12 to Sugar Bowl; ACC to Orange Bowl against the highest ranked available team from the SEC, Big Ten and Notre Dame). If a conference champion qualifies for the playoff, then the bowl will choose a replacement from that conference. When those bowls host the semifinals and their contracted conference champions do not qualify, then the dis­placed champion(s) will play in the other New Year’s bowls.

The Fiesta, Cotton and Peach Bowls will host displaced conference champions and the top-ranked champion from a non-contract conference. The highest-ranked available teams will fill any other berths. The Selection Committee will make the pairings.

Good Luck to Your College Football Team!
