HOOVER, Ala. -- Bill Hancock said the College Football Playoff is considering moving the playoff semifinals from New Years Eve.Hancock, the CFPs executive director, said the move could happen no sooner than after the 2018 regular season.Were exploring if theres a better [date] for the semifinals, Hancock said. Were thinking about if New Years Eve is the way to go.The fact that Hancock publicly addressed the possibility of moving the games off New Years Eve indicates it is likely to happen, a source said.Theres still work to be done, a source said. However, I doubt Bill would have said something if he didnt think he could get the room [of the commissioners] there.Last seasons Orange Bowl semifinal on New Years Eve between Clemson and Oklahoma drew a 9.1 rating, a 38.5 percent drop compared to the previous years Rose Bowl semifinal on New Years Day, which had a 14.8 rating. The number of viewers dropped nearly 45 percent from 28.1 million for the Rose to 15.6 million for the Orange.Last seasons Cotton Bowl semifinal on New Years Eve between Alabama and Michigan State drew a 9.6 rating, a 36.8 percent drop compared to the previous years Sugar Bowl semifinal (a 15.2 rating) on New Years Day. The viewership dropped nearly 35 percent, from 28.2 million to 18.5 million.All CFP games are televised on ESPN.The FBS conference commissioners who created the CFP in 2012 said they wanted to start a new tradition by playing the semifinals on New Years Eve two of every three years during the 12-year contract with ESPN. When the Rose and Sugar Bowls host the semifinal games, those would always be played on New Years Day.After the just-completed Year 2, Hancock said the CFP stood by its decision to keep the semifinals on New Years Eve to start a new tradition in viewing habits. That stance, however, has softened with Hancock admitting the bigger priority is finding a date to get the most people to watch.Even before Year 2, ESPN executives lobbied extensively for the semifinals to be moved off New Years Eve. But the conference commissioners wouldnt budge.This seasons semifinals at the Peach and Fiesta bowls will be on New Years Eve with the CFP title game Jan. 9 in Tampa, Florida.The 2017 season semifinals at the Rose and Sugar bowls will be on Jan. 1, so the earliest the Playoff could move the semifinals is Year 5 -- after the 2018 regular season. Those semifinals are currently scheduled for the Orange and Cotton bowls on Dec. 31, 2017.The CFP has a 12-year contract with ESPN to televise the four-team playoffs. Hancock said there has been no talk from university presidents or commissioners about expanding the playoff field. Hancock added that after six years of the playoff -- after the 2019 regular season -- the CFP can look in and potentially change three of the six bowls -- the Fiesta, Cotton and Peach.Hancock also said the Big 12s decision to add a conference championship game after the 2017 season will greatly help the league in the CFP. The Big 12 was the only Power 5 league that didnt have a conference title game and didnt play 13 games. Hancock said they talked a lot with the Big 12 and told them how much adding another quality opponent would help.It gives them another quality opponent, Hancock said. It is a game-changer.
