College Football Playoff Schedule Set for 2024, 2025

NCAA Football: Northwestern at Wisconsin

The College Football Playoff is set to expand after the 2023-24 season, allowing 12 teams to get their shot at taking home a national title.

The current four-team format has been around since 2014 and has helped crown nine national champions, over a group of just five teams.

  • Ohio State (2014)
  • Alabama (2015, 2017, 2020)
  • Clemson (2016, 2018)
  • LSU (2019)
  • Georgia (2021, 2022)
 

Now, with 12 teams getting their shot, fans across the nation hope that a wider array of teams will find their names distinguished along with the names above (I, for one, am not so certain that is how things will play out, but, I digress).

With just one season of football standing between us and an expanded playoff, the logistics of the newly formatted event have been finalized, according to a tweet from Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellenger.

Per a Cotton Bowl press release, this is what the 2024 and 2025 College Football Playoff schedules will look like.
