AP source: Rose Bowl clears way for 12-team CFP in 2024

By RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer

Rose Bowl game organizers have cleared the way for the College Football Playoff to expand to 12 teams starting in the 2024 season.

They've told CFP officials they are willing to alter agreements for the first two years of the larger playoff.

A person with knowledge of the discussions between game organizers and CFP officials told The Associated Press that the Rose Bowl is prepared to be flexible and wants to continue to be part of the College Football Playoff beyond 2025.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the presidents and chancellors who oversee the playoff still needed to give final approval on expansion plans.
