Led By SEC and Big Ten, CFP Agrees To Post-2026 Terms

Mar 16, 2024

The College Football Playoff hasn’t even seen its first expanded 12-team extravaganza, but that isn’t stopping conferences from looking ahead to the next CFP era.

On Friday, the nine FBS commissioners, as well as Notre Dame, agreed to solidify several details of Playoff expansion beginning in 2026 (when current contracts with ESPN and other New Year’s Six bowl games expire), executive director Bill Hancock said. The contract guarantees that at least 12 teams will make it into the playoff between 2026 and ’31, with the option to consider further expansion.

“We’re pleased to be in the position we’re in, while we know that there’s still more work to be done,” Hancock said.
