The process of expanding the College Football Playoff is officially moving forward, but one Power 5 conference is already publicly taking issue with one of the key aspects of setting the proposed field of 12 teams.

On Friday, outgoing Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott issued a statement calling for the Autonomy 5 (Power 5) conference champions to receive automatic Playoff bids:

“The Pac-12 supports expansion of the CFP and believes that the Autonomy Five champions should annually qualify for the CFP. We greatly appreciate the work of the CFP sub-committee as well as the thoughtful and productive discussions amongst the management committee this week in Chicago. We now look forward to reviewing the expansion proposal more thoroughly with our members, student-athletes, partners and other key stakeholders.”

Under the proposed expansion, the field of 12 teams would include the six highest-ranked conference champions, plus the six highest-ranked other teams as determined by the CFP selection committee. No conference would qualify automatically and there would be no limit on the number of participants from a conference.

As one would expect, the Pac-12 was widely called out on social media for expressing concern about being left out of a 12-team field.
