America, Realigned: How Would a 12-Team College Football Playoff Look?

You read about the Forde Bowl Subdivision realignment plan Monday on this website. Today, let’s see how it would look if it were put into action for 2020. What we would have is merely the greatest postseason* in college football history.

(*This is assuming that there will be a season, of course, and a postseason thereafter. No guarantees at this point.)

The best and biggest playoff ever would start with Selection Sunday, Nov. 29. A 12-team bracket would be revealed—10 automatic bids to conference champions, two at-large teams chosen by a selection committee, the whole thing seeded by said committee.
