College Football Playoffs: Plan Could Include 8 Bowls

The new college football playoff system, set to be implemented in 2014, could feature eight bowl games, as well as the national championship game, according to Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany.

Per the Wall Street Journal, concerns about the access of smaller conferences to the system prompted the BCS leaders to reconsider their proposal. They will reportedly meet this week to discuss the new possible bowl additions as well as revenue sharing.

The Rose Bowl, Orange Bowl and Champions Bowl have all been voted to be included while the remaining bowls in the new postseason system have yet to be determined.

An additional two bowls to the playoff system would allow for more schools to have a chance to enter the playoff system, and thus, have a chance at claiming the national title.

It had long been considered inevitable that the playoff system would eventually expand past six bowls, and it appears that this reality could come sooner rather than later.
