12-team College Football Playoff selection process wont wait for Army-Navy result



Last Updated on April 25, 2024 by Robert C. Hoopes

The Army-Navy Game will not impact the selection process for the 12-team College Football Playoff, as decided by officials. Traditionally, the matchup between the two rivals was held after the final rankings were released, but this will no longer be the case.

Army and Navy had hoped to see seeding for 11 of the 12 teams in the Playoff, while still holding out for a Group of 5 spot if needed. However, CFP officials made the decision not to ask participants to wait a full week to learn their opponents. This opens up the possibility for a team to qualify for the Playoff and still play in another game just six days later.

In other news, Army will be joining the American Athletic Conference as a football-only member, but the Army-Navy game will remain a nonconference matchup. Despite this change, the CFP will not be moving its first-round games off the third Saturday in December.

Furthermore, Washington AD Pat Chun has stepped down from the CFP selection committee. Additionally, the CFP has increased its travel budget for team family members from $1.5 million to $7.5 million.

Overall, these changes and updates to the CFP selection process and related events will have a significant impact on the upcoming college football season. Stay tuned to ‘My MBA Career’ for more updates and analysis on this developing story.
