Hoover, Ala. (WIAT) —  Year three of the College Football Playoff gave what is widely considered one of the best championship games in College Football history.  Heading into year four of the four team selection committee, President Bill Hancock is excited to see what comes next.

“We’ve learned the playoff works, coaches and fans love it.” Said Hancock “This year we decided not to make any changes.”

While the four team playoff is widely considered a success over the former BCS system, there has been speculation the field could be expanding from four teams to eight.  However Hancock told CBS 42 Sports Anchor Chris Renkel, the committee won’t be expanding anytime soon.

“No talk withing our leadership of expanding” Said Hancock “Four teams helps us focus on the regular season we have the bets most compelling regular season in sports, why monkey with a good thing?”
