Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby told me he's not ready for any serious talks about expanding the playoff, and that the current 4-team CFP is fair to undefeated UCF because the Knights likely wouldn't be undefeated if they played a Power 5 conference schedule. “It's fair because playing in the American Athletic is not the same as playing in the Big Ten or the SEC or the Big 12, it's just not. They have some big games, but they don't have an Iowa State who can beat a second-ranked Oklahoma. The depth of those leagues and the quality at the top, getting ready for one game against Auburn, that's a lot different than playing Auburn every week. ... TCU, if TCU and UCF played 10 times, I defy anybody to convince me that UCF would win the majority of the games. Of course I've only been looking at it for 35 years.”
