If you are going to truly do a playoff, just go to 12 teams

standardize the regular season to 10 games per team (8 conf and 2 non-conf), conference champ games become game 11 and get an auto bid for the P5. Non-P5 get a chance to get in by doing well enough to be in top 12.

Playoff round 1 (wildcard) is on college campus for higher ranked teams (teams ranked 5-12) top 4 teams earn a bye
Round 2 is on college campus for top 4 ranked teams (8 teams)
Round 3 uses bowl sites like now (4 teams)
Round 4 uses bowl site like now (2 teams)

Gives extra home game revenue to top teams and all the advantages with extra rest and prep time. Only two teams would potentially be subject to an extra 15th game (if they were to make it all the way to the title game). And eliminates any complaining by teams currently on the bubble. Schools that know they have no shot could of course schedule extra regular season games for revenue. So keeps the regular season relevant and the playoffs somewhat similar to what we have now while adding opportunities to make money.
