Playoff expansion proposal submitted


The recommendation from the CFP's working group will be a 12-team model, sources tell
@TheAthletic
. Six highest-ranked conference champions + six at-large spots.

Conference Champs get a bye. Notre Dame will never be eligible for the bye, but Swarbrick is happy with it.

The recommendation will say that the first-round games would be played on campus. Obviously, the 12-team format means the top four seeds get first-round byes.

ESPN detail:
Under the proposal for a 12-team format, the four highest-ranked conference champions would be seeded 1-4 and receive a first-round bye. Teams 5-12 would play each other in the first round on the home field of the higher-ranked team. The quarterfinals and semifinals would be played in bowl games, and the national championship game would remain at a neutral site.
