College Football Playoffs: 5 Formats To Reportedly Be Proposed

College football is shifting away from the current bowl system and is expected to implement a playoff system in the coming years in order to determine a national champion. The exact nature of how these playoffs would be determined or formatted is still very much up for debate.

Brett McMurphy of CBS Sports reports that there will be five different playoff formats proposed to the school presidents. SB Nation's SEC blog Team Speed Kills breaks down the possibilities for us.

Two formats involve a four-team playoff with the four best teams, one with the semifinals in bowls and one with them at neutral sites that aren't bowls. Two formats involve a four-team playoff with reserved spots for conference champions if they finish in the top six or eight spots, one with the semifinals in bowls and one with them at neutral sites that aren't bowls. The final format is a plus one.

These five formats will be officially presented to the school presidents on June 26.
