Finebaum makes shocking claim about CFP, college football

ESPN personality Paul Finebaum, who has his own show on the SEC Network, says the College Football Playoff’s decision to expand to a 12-team format may have saved college football.

However, he says they now need to make sure the playoff is ready to run in 2024.

A working group recommended on Thursday to the CFP management committee that the playoff should be moved from a four-team playoff to a 12-team playoff. ESPN’s Heather Dinich reported on Friday the playoff format will not happen for the next two years, but it is not likely going to have to wait until the current contract is up, as long as everyone is on the same page.
