Just Expanded To 12 Teams, The College Football Playoff Is Already Looking To Extend That Number To 14: REPORT

I was fine with 12, but 2 more would be fine too.

Although it was recently expanded to 12 teams, the College Football Playoff may change again before trying out a new format. If you’re thinking 12 teams is too many, we have bad news for you.

According to ESPN’s Pete Thamel, the committee is already considering expanding to 14 teams, and the possibility of doing so in the near future has already been raised at the conference.

“Source: The idea of ​​a 14-team College Football Playoff was discussed by the CFP Board of Management today at a meeting in the Dallas area,” Thamel wrote. “If that happens, it would start in 2026. Nothing is imminent, but it’s important that this idea was discussed.”

I’m all for this, but to be honest, I just don’t understand what’s on the other side of the fence. After the decades of BCS hell we’ve been through, how can you not support a 14-team playoff in college football?

Better yet, what about the turmoil we just experienced in Florida?

It was a 4 team playoff! (Related: If new details of EA Sports’ ‘College Football 25’ video game actually leak, this would be a huge deal)

In a 14-team playoff, there are no legitimate complaints about any team looking out of place, you just need to be angry at yourself for not making it to the top 14 (14 spots is fair enough) — FSU Unlike, they were eliminated from the top four in the 2024 College Football Playoff.
