The College Football Playoff announced Thursday it would consider expanding from four to 12 teams to settle the championship. But, instead, they reserved six spots for the highest-ranked conference champions and the other six going to at-large selections. “This proposal, at its heart, was created to provide more participation,” CFP Executive Director Bill Hancock said.

After several hours of deliberation Wednesday, a Houston jury found that Baylor and three former football players were not responsible for the alleged sexual assault of a female athlete in 2017. The woman alleged in a 2019 lawsuit that she was intoxicated without her consent and raped in her room in a university housing complex. That was in the fall of 2017. A year and a half after the school fired head football coach Art Briles.
