What a 12-team playoff would look like in college football in 2022-2023

With the College Football Playoff moving to a 12-team format in 2024, let’s take a look at what it would look like this season:

The format includes the top four conference champions, followed by six at-large bids and the two highest ranking conference champions. It guarantees the top “Group of 5” champion will participate. That also hurts the chances of an independent squad ever being in the top four of the rankings. The rankings will be based on the final College Football Playoff rankings of the season.

The opening round will consist of seeds 5-8 hosting seeds 9-12 at their home stadiums while seeds 1-4 get byes for the weekend. In the quarterfinals, the number one seeded team will get to choose first which bowl they play at followed by the second, third, and fourth seeds. The highest ranked team remaining will do the same by picking their bowl destination in the semifinals just like in the quarters. The Championship will always be played at a neutral site.
