College football is divided by the talk of whether or not the College Football Playoff should be expanded. Even though fans and media outlets got what they wanted by ridding the BCS system and going into a Playoff system, they want more.

The talk of expanding the Playoff to 8 or 12 teams is a possibility, but there are no plans to expand yet. Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby is worried that the Playoff could not be expanded after 2024. He continued to add that the Playoff expansion might be difficult to do in 2025.

The Big 12 will lose both University of Oklahoma and the University of Texas to the SEC starting in the 2025 season. While the Big 12 will get the addition of Houston, Cincinnati, UCF, and BYU in 2023, there will be some concern for the lack of elite competition once Oklahoma and Texas move to the SEC.

The SEC will have potential Playoff contending teams in 2025, which will make it difficult for opposing conferences, like the Big 12, to have a team in a four-team Playoff format.
