NEW YORK (AP) -It's not exactly at the top of his agenda, but President-elect Barack Obama says there should be a college football playoff to determine a national champion. In fact, he knows exactly what he wants - an eight-team playoff.
In an interview with ``60 Minutes,'' Obama addresses a subject college football fans have debated for many years, and says he will use his influence to create such a system.
``If you've got a bunch of teams who play throughout the season, and many of them have one loss or two losses, there's no clear decisive winner. We should be creating a playoff system,'' he tells CBS' Steve Kroft in an interview to be broadcast Sunday.
According to Obama's proposed system, eight teams would play over three rounds to settle the national champion.
``It would add three extra weeks to the season,'' he said at the conclusion of a wide-ranging interview. ``You could trim back on the regular season. I don't know any serious fan of college football who has disagreed with me on this. So, I'm going to throw my weight around a little bit. I think it's the right thing to do.''
