The future of the CFP expansion is in the hands of the Rose Bowl

The Rose Bowl is on the clock.

The board of directors of the CFP does not plan to guarantee the Rose Bowl game its request for an exclusive Jan. 1 window in future iterations of an extended playoff, sources say, and they have given the sport’s oldest operational bowl a deadline.

The Rose Bowl and its officials, viewed as the final hurdle to an early playoff extension, had just days to make a potentially monumental decision for the future of college football’s postseason. The Rose Bowl can either agree to extend the playoffs as early as 2024 or delay the extension to ’26.
