6 highest ranked conference champs & next 6 highest ranked teams will make @CFBPlayoff
. 4 highest-ranked conference champs seeded 1-4 will receive 1st-round bye. Teams 5-12 will play 1st round at home field of highest-ranked team. Notre Dame/Independents can’t get 1st round bye
I double-checked this and because the 12-team CFP proposal's four first-round byes are for conference champions, Notre Dame would not be eligible for a bye.
I’m told Notre Dame cannot get a bye under this proposal.
How 12-team 2020 @CFBPlayoff
would have looked:
12 Coastal at 5 Notre Dame
11 Indiana at 6 A&M
10 Iowa State at 7 Florida
9 UGA at 8 Cincinnati
CC/ND vs. 4 OU
UGA/UC vs. 1 Bama
IU/A&M vs. 2 Clemson
ISU/UF vs. 3 Ohio State
4 vs. 1
3 vs. 2
If this proposed new playoff system applied last year, this is round 1:
Texas A&M-Coastal Carolina in College Station
Oklahoma-Indiana in Norman
Florida-Iowa State in Gainesville
Cincinnati-Georgia in Cincinnati
Byes: Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, Notre Dame

Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick on Irish not eligible for 1st round bye: “I look forward to never hearing how we played one less game or never had a conference championship"
I got bad news for the ND haters if the college football playoff expands to 8 or 12...Notre Dame will be in it every single year https://t.co/Vwn1OJao4G
In the 12-team playoff, the four bye weeks will go to the top-four conference champions.
Which means Notre Dame can’t get a bye unless they join a conference. And that’s f*cking hilarious. 😂 https://t.co/O6GEROvIOT
If you are Notre Dame you have to join the ACC full time now. There is zero incentive with the 12 team coming up to be independent besides pride.
So under new proposal Notre Dame would never be seeded better than fifth and would have to win four playoff games to win the national championship even if Irish entered the playoff with a 12-0 record and scoring margin of 25 points per game.
Here's what the 2020 College Football Playoff would have looked like under the new 12-team proposal. Two Group of 5 teams would have made it, but no Pac-12 teams.
Oklahoma would have received a bye over Notre Dame since the Sooners were the 4th-highest ranked conference champion https://t.co/3rc4ED7JcD
I will definitely miss moments like that Saturday in November 2012 when ND was #3 and going to miss the BCS entirely. Beat Wake Forest on Senior Day.
Then Kansas State and Oregon lost that night and Notre Dame went to No. 1. It was nuts. https://t.co/EobUWlgK6t
It’s a moot point from a one-off kind of season, but if USC had beaten Oregon in the Pac-12 Championship Game last year, we would have got Notre Dame vs. USC in South Bend in December in the College Football Playoff.
In actuality, Notre Dame would have hosted Coastal Carolina.
I love that the college football playoff proposal sticks it to Notre Dame. There's finally a tangible REAL penalty for not being in a conference. No first round bye. Great job by the committee.
If Notre Dame was the No. 5 seed every year in the Playoff era (meaning it finished No. 1-to-5 in the polls), its No. 5 vs. No. 12 opening round at home would have been against:
’20 Coastal Carolina
’18 Penn State
’16 Western Michigan
’14 Boise St https://t.co/ffw0IkCbg2
Automatic bids for six conference champs?
A willingness to alter the calendar?
Hope for the Group of 5?
College football's playoff expansion plan is surprisingly sound, writes @ByPatForde https://t.co/PdHUMtHtbn
The 12-team @CFBPlayoff
proposal gives rediscovered respect to conference champs. The six highest-ranked league winners get bids, regardless of ranking. In 2019, No. 17 Memphis would have been in, No. 12 Notre Dame out. Being ranked 12th will be nerve-wracking, probably painful.

Devin Smith from Utica Notre Dame HS in Section 3 is a SR Captain studying Criminology!
Who is next to follow in Devin’s footsteps?
So 12-0 No. 1 Notre Dame in 2012 wouldn't get a bye in the new playoff format? Full-member ACC membership...here come the Irish. https://t.co/Tec3YD31Ll

Losing record against Notre Dame ☘☘☘
Dead and in Hell 🔥🔥🔥
No matter whether you like, or hate, NDs place in the 12-team format, let's take a moment to recognize a TON of people are talking about "irrelevant" Notre Dame today.
