Drop 12 teams in the College Football Playoffs: App State, Georgia, USC

Why wait a few years before assembling an extended college football accessory bracket when we can do it now?! Let’s celebrate the college leaders who finally agreed on something good for the entire sport, from coast to coast.

Using the current college football standings to create a fictional 12-team playoff bracket based on the model adopted earlier this month by CFP executives, this 12-team (1) model features automatic playoffs for the six top-ranked conference champions and (ii) six overall picks for the next six highest-ranked teams. The four highest-ranked conference champions receive a second-round farewell (Freelancers are not eligible to receive a farewell). We’ve used surveys mostly for distribution, but have focused more on team competition up to this point.
