SEC Presidents Vote Against CFP Expansion

Per 247Sports, SEC presidents voted against expanding the College Football Playoffs during meetings in Nashville last week.

“We voted yesterday to support the four-team football playoff. We think it’s working fairly well. Some fans, of course, want eight, others want 16. If you go to 16, people want 32. Mainly this is based on player welfare. At that time of the year after playing a rugged season, the last thing these great student-athletes need is to play yet another football game. That is something that I’m confident all five power conferences will be supportive of.” - South Carolina President Harris Pastides

All 14 SEC presidents were in attendance at the meeting. 247Sports also says that the presidents addressed potential changes to overtime and more flexible cross-division scheduling.
