Big 12 commissioner will not rule out College Football Playoff expansion
There are a number of fans who believe that the College Football Playoff is simply too small at its current total of four teams. Those who believe that got some somewhat positive news on Monday.
Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said that, while there is no real urgency to expand the playoff field beyond its current size, discussions about doing so will continue.
Bob Bowlsby on @CFBPlayoff expanding: “I don’t sense any significant movement to move away from 4 (teams) but I expect those discussions to be ongoing.” Current 4-team playoff set through 2026

As noted, however, the current format is locked in through 2026. Any changes are a long ways away. Plus, even as expansion is floated, it simply doesn’t sound like there’s a lot of institutional support for it.
