Commissioners to talk playoff format
NEW YORK (AP)
Conference commissioners will meet Monday, hoping to come to a decision on whether to have a six- or seven-game format for the new college football playoff.
Support has waned for adding a seventh marquee bowl game to the semifinal rotation. But there is still a strong possibility some type of automatic access to the system will be given to the Big East and four other conferences currently without a bowl of their own.
Sun Belt Commissioner Karl Benson says he is confident the commitment to access for those conferences remains in place.
