I think it's safe to say that many of us are confused about the new College Football Playoff format that is coming in the 2014-2015 season! But instead of being frightened, we should be informed and embrace the change that is coming!

Take a look at these frequently asked questions on how the College Football Playoff will function:
Q: How are the teams selected to go to the College Football Playoff?
A: This system is in place to ensure that every game counts. The Selection Committee will rank the top 25 teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) and then work to seed the top four. These top four teams will be selected by by reviewing game tapes, the strength of schedule, head-to-head results and points-comparison to opponents, to name a few.
Q: Will the decision be made in public?
A: The Selection Committee aims to be as transparent as possible while retaining the ability to deliberate privately among themselves. When the procedure is finalized, it will be made public.
