The College Football Playoff Board of Managers decided Friday to expand to a 12-team playoff, according to reports.

The 12-team playoff likely will begin in 2026, when the playoffs' current contract ends, but there is an outside chance it could begin as early as 2024, according to ESPN.

So top 4 seeds will have a bye?  The other eight have to fight it out the first round.   That sounds about right.   I expect this will push out the College Championships out a bit, but Dec is pretty slow so maybe not so much.

The seems right.  I surmise they would play the first 4 games in advance of New Years.  The Q finals would become 4 big bowl games followed by the semis and final a week apart.
