IRVING, Texas (AP) — College Football Playoff executive director Bill Hancock says the CFP management committee has discussed dozens of possible changes to the format during meetings this week while also voicing support for the current four-team format.

In a news release, Hancock says the full committee of conference commissioners and Notre Dame’s athletic director heard from four of its members who have been analyzing expansions options.

More than 60 possible formats were reviewed, including those with six, eight, 10, 12 and 16 teams, according to the CFP.

The working group expects to make a full report on future formats at an upcoming meeting.
