HOOVER, Ala. – If you’re waiting for the college football playoff to expand to more than four teams, you’re going to have to keep on waiting.

Bill Hancock, executive director of the College Football Playoff, said Wednesday, “There is no talk about the expansion of the field.’’

While addressing journalists at the SEC media days in Alabama, Hancock said keeping the field at four teams keeps the emphasis on college football’s regular season.

This will be the fourth year of the four-team playoff format and Hancock reminded everyone that there is a 12-year contract in place for a four-team playoff. Because the playoff has been successful, there has been talk that it’s only a matter of time before the playoff expands to eight or possibly even 16 teams some day.

But, for now, the playoff will stay at four.
