The idea of ​​a potential college football playoff expansion has been a hot topic of discussion since the original four-team model was introduced in 2015.

On Friday, the CFP Board of Managers will gather for a meeting to determine whether the playoffs should be extended.

As Sports Illustrated's college football insider Ross Delanger reports.

If the vote is unanimous, the extension could be brought to the table as early as 2024.

If there is no consensus, the expansion will begin in 2026 following the expiration of the CFP TV contract with ESPN.

Extension talks reached an all-time high in 2021, before commissioners ultimately failed to agree on a draft in the spring.

This upcoming meeting is seen as a "fiery moment" in revived expansion talks.

The 16-team and 12-team playoff model is reportedly seen as the preferred option by the 11-member board of managers.

While this impending vote is undoubtedly a sign of progress towards future expansion,

"Nothing is done until it is done," said a source.

Stay tuned for updates on this ongoing process.
