Reports: CFP meeting takes place in Dallas, ‘no major decisions’ regarding format change amid expansion

A group of conference commissioners and College Football Playoff leaders met Wednesday in Dallas and discussed a variety of topics, according to multiple reports. 

Among the topics of discussion included ticket distribution, team lodging and “other important but tedious matters around the first-round games on campus,” according to Ross Dellenger of Yahoo! Sports

The meeting was described to have been “productive” and “cordial” by Executive Director Bill Hancock, according to Nicole Auerbach of The Athletic

“No major decisions” were made surrounding some of the bigger topics that leaders around the CFP will likely soon address, such as format changes and revenue distribution, according to Heather Dinich of ESPN

Amid conference expansion and recent realignment moves like the Big 12 adding four Pac-12 programs — Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado and Utah — and the Big Ten including Oregon and Washington

The Atlantic Coast Conference, left relatively unimpacted by expansion given no additions or subtractions are on the docket, is eyeing possible moves. There could soon be a vote held to determine whether the ACC will add Cal, Southern Methodist University and Stanford. 

A meeting originally scheduled among ACC presidents was postponed Monday due to the on-campus shooting at North Carolina, according to Auerbach. The meeting currently has no rescheduled date. 

Regarding possible CFP expansion, which is already set to increase to a 12-team format in 2024, it’s likely a change to the new model will come. Hancock reportedly said “We’re going to have to wait until the dust settles before making any decisions about how it might affect the CFP,” according to Auerbach

One change that came from Wednesday’s CFP meeting was that the CFP “will provide a stipend for student-athletes’ families to travel to all rounds” and that “125 players on each team will get $3,000 per round to cover their families’ travel,” according to Auerbach.
