The College Football Playoff has taken another step towards officially expanding.

According to CBS Sports, the College Football Playoff Board of Managers signed off on a feasibility study for the 12-team model Tuesday. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The move was widely expected, and it was the next step forward for expansion. The study is expected to be finished at some point this summer and available for a big September meeting with commissioners and school presidents, according to the same report.

It might just be a small step forward, but it’s still a step of the process that needed to be completed. Now, the feasibility study, which will without a doubt confirm expansion can happen, will be conducted and presented to the power players involved.

From there, expansion will be rubber stamped, and I couldn’t be more excited if I tried.

The biggest question now is when the field will officially grow to 12 teams. The earliest possible date is 2023, but that’s not a guarantee. It might take longer.

Let’s just hope like hell it doesn’t because fans want a 12-team field as fast as humanly possible.
