If you’ve grown weary of seeing the same handful of teams comprise the bulk of the spots in the College Football Playoff year after year after year — or, if you’re frustrated by the fact that your favorite team, the Washington State Cougars, has no realistic path to participation — good news: There’s a very real chance that the CFP will be expanding in the near future after a committee recommended increasing the field to 12 teams.

For now, it’s simply a recommendation; the format would need to be agreed upon by all the FBS commissioners next week, and then it would need to be formally approved by the CFP board of managers on June 22.
