(AP) - The College Football Playoff would expand from four to 12 teams, with six spots reserved for the highest-ranked conference champions, under a proposal that will be considered next week.

A person familiar with the announcement tells The Associated Press that a 12-team playoff would include the six highest-ranked conference champions in major college football, plus six at-large selections.

The CFP's surprising disclosure comes a week ahead of the planned presentation to CFP officials in Chicago.
