NCAA president prefers eight-team College Football Playoff

|

The College Football Playoff isn’t a flawless system, but it has proven to be better than what was previously in place to determine a national champion. Despite the success of the playoff, there are still things that attract plenty of criticism, like the fact that Penn State missed out on the final four despite winning the Big Ten Championship, arguably the toughest conference in the nation.

So how could things be fixed to ensure no conference champs are left behind?

Well, if you ask NCAA President Mark Emmert, the answer would be to expand the field to eight teams so every Power Five champion makes the cut.

Brett McMurphy of ESPN reported that Emmert prefers an eight-team field .

I doubt you would hear many complaints about that, but unfortunately for Penn State fans it won’t help their case this season.
