ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) The administrators who've been given the task of expanding the College Football Playoff from four to 12 teams left their latest in-person meetings Wednesday with the biggest question unanswered: How soon?

"Making progress," CFP Executive Director Bill Hancock said after the meetings near Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. "We all have to remember the College Football Playoff will expand. And that will be a good thing for the game. And we're just trying to see if we can do it earlier.

"I think a lot of us feel like earlier is icing on the cake. We're going to have our cake in 2026. Can we ice it now and start earlier?"

SEC producing unrivaled crop of QBs

For four quarters, Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker and Florida counterpart Anthony Richardson went back and forth before more than 100,000 fans packed inside Neyland Stadium in one of the most entertaining games of the season.

It was a game of one-upmanship: Hooker threw for 349 yards and two touchdowns without an interception while running for 112 yards and another score, and Richardson merely threw for 453 yard and two TDs while running for 62 yards and two more scores before the Vols eventually escaped with a heart-stopping 38-33 win to open SEC play.

Kansas, K-State big surprises in Big 12

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Kansas State barged into the Top 25 after its win at Oklahoma on Saturday night, and there's a good argument to be made that the Wildcats' biggest rival - just down Interstate 70 - deserves to be there, too.
