Florida Lawmakers Consider Protesting Florida State CFP Omission

Dec 4, 2023

Florida lawmakers already have an appetite to propose state legislation to protest Florida State not making the College Football Playoff, a source close to lawmakers told Front Office Sports.

On Sunday, the CFP made the controversial decision to award Alabama the fourth slot in the postseason instead of the undefeated Seminoles. The decision was presumably made due to the strength of schedule considerations and the loss of FSU’s quarterback Jordan Travis, who broke his leg in a non-conference game against North Alabama on November 18.

But some lawmakers don’t appear to be accepting this explanation. It’s unclear what direction a bill could take — but legislators are currently discussing multiple options, the source said.
