The expansion of the College Football Playoff could eventually force Notre Dame to make a decision to join the ACC. Earlier this week a committee was formed to examine an expansion of the CFP to 12 teams from the previous four who earn berths. The Miami football team and the ACC could benefit from the new format.
The new CFP format is proposing the top six conference champions earn bids. The top four conference titlists would earn the highest seeds in the CFP. Notre Dame would have to enter any 12 team CFP as no higher than the fifth seed.
