College Football Playoffs to Have 6 Games, Not 7

(AP) The new college football postseason will have six games as originally planned, but now a spot in the marquee bowls will be reserved for the best team from a group of five conferences that includes the Big East.

The change to the postseason format that'll start in 2014 was made Monday during a meeting of conference commissioners and university presidents.

In September, there was a proposal to add a seventh game to the format that would match the best team from the Big East, Mountain West, Conference USA, Sun Belt and Mid-American Conference against a team from the Pac-12 of Big 12.

That plan did not go through and instead an automatic spot was created to give those conferences access to the top games.
