The College Football Playoff has announced that it will now shift its schedule in the future to limit semi-final games to Saturdays, and holidays.
It's amazing how quickly a major decline in television rankings (the ratings for the 2015 semis dropped 40% compared to 2014) can change your mind.
The changes will only affect the CFP schedules in years five, six, 11 and 12 of its current rotation, and although the plan is to get the semis off of weekdays, there is still one year they'll come on a weekday. That's in Dec. 31, 2021, which will fall on a Friday. The difference is, since it's a Friday, it's deemed a federal holiday.
