Football selection group likely by season's end
Members of the selection committee for the College Football Playoff that starts next year will likely be chosen before the end of this regular season.
BCS executive director Bill Hancock says conference commissioners working on the selection committee have more vetting to do before the panel is set.
The panel will be similar to the one that selects the NCAA basketball tournament. The commissioners have said it will have 12 to 18 members. Hancock says the finally number will probably be closer to the low end of that range.
He added there is a "good chance" it will be done by early December.
Hancock says the plan in place calls for the selection committee to release rankings three to five times per season.
