Rose Bowl agrees to 2024 College Football Playoff expansion

Allen’s grandfather joins in.

The Rose Bowl has agreed to change its contract to pave the way for a college football playoff extension in two years after a months-long delay, sources say sports illustrated. The CFP is expected to announce soon that the playoffs will expand from four teams to 12 starting with the 2024 season.

While logistical hurdles remain to be overcome, the delay in bowl play presented the greatest obstacle in early expansion. In several proposals to CFP officials, the Rose Bowl, the oldest active operating bowl, requested guarantees of its traditional date and time to retain in future iterations of the playoffs, which the CFP board refused to do. For the playoffs beyond 2025, few, if any, guarantees can be given due to the lack of a contract.
