Will the recommended college football playoff model force Notre Dame to join a conference?

The college football playoff news has been hot and heavy over the last couple of days, and now we are learning what the recommended model may look like.

Sources tell me & @ByPatForde that the CFP working group is recommending a 12-team playoff: 6 highest-ranked conference champs & 6 at-large.

The 4 highest-ranked champs get a bye while other 8 play 1st-round games on campus.

Long way from done, but this is the recommendation.— Ross Dellenger (@RossDellenger) June 10, 2021

The recommendation is a 12 team model with the 6 highest rated conference champions, and 6 at-large bids.
