Sources: CFP leaders moving closer to adjusting 12-team playoff format

Nov 11, 2023

College Football Playoff leaders continue to move closer to adjusting the postseason format in the wake of realignment.

The CFP Management Committee, the 10 FBS conference commissioners and Notre Dame, is recommending that college football’s expanded playoff field encompass five automatic qualifiers (5) and seven at-large berths (7). The 5+7 format would be a change from the originally approved 6+6 model.

At their meeting Thursday in Dallas, commissioners cast votes to send a recommendation to the CFP Board of Managers — their corresponding school presidents — to make the change. Several people with knowledge of the discussions spoke to Yahoo Sports under condition of anonymity.
