Rose Bowl to Accept 2024 College Football Playoff Expansion

The granddaddy of them all is lining up.

The Rose Bowl, after months of delay, has agreed to amend his contract to pave the way for a two-year expansion of the College Football Playoff, sources say. Sports Illustrated. The CFP is expected to announce soon that the Playoff will expand from four to 12 teams starting in the 2024 season.

While there are still logistical hurdles to overcome, the delay of the bowling alley posed the biggest hurdle in the initial expansion. In multiple proposals to CFP officials, the Rose Bowl, the oldest active operating bowl, requested guarantees to maintain its traditional date and time in future iterations of the Playoffs, something the CFP executive board denied. Few, if any, guarantees can be made for the Playoff beyond 2025 because there is no contract.
