I am not sure what the playoff structure will look like next year with twelve teams. I do know that in order to control our own destiny this year with the four team CFP that it is basically the same scenario.
Beat TCUN, Win the BIG Championship then the CFP this year.
The one exception this year is Iowa being in the mix which wouldn’t be among the twelve it still requires us to simply win four.
Also in the mix next year, it might include a playoff game in the shoe. How cool would that be!
