- The commissioners of each Power 5 school, each Group of 5 school, and a Notre Dame representative met to vote on changing the CFB playoff format before the expiration of the current agreement. The vote came out to 8-3 against changing the current format. A unanimous vote was required to change the current system before it expires after the 2025 season. It was reported that all alliance members (Pac-12, ACC, and Big 10) voted against the proposed changes.
- Here is Pac-12 Commissioner George Kliavkoff’s statement on the vote.
I share the disappointment felt by many college football fans today. I look forward to working collaboratively with other Commissioners to deliver a football playoff format that is more inclusive and balanced.— George Kliavkoff (@Kliavkoff) February 18, 2022
- The football spring game was announced for April 23rd! $22 for 2 chairback seats or $22 for 4 bleacher seats. A pretty good deal if you ask me!
Mark your calendars for April 23rd!— Utah Football (@Utah_Football) February 18, 2022
All proceeds from ticket sales, which go on sale in March, will go to the Aaron Lowe and Ty Jordan Memorial Scholarship funds.
