One of Saturday’s college football playoff matches took place between Michigan and Texas Christian University in Glendale, site of the annual Fiesta Bowl.

However, changes are expected to alter the tournament format in the near future. Beginning with the 2024 season, the collegiate football playoffs will expand from just four teams to 12.

Fiesta Bowl Chief Marketing Officer Jose Moreno says how the changes will impact the role of the game are still being determined.

“There’s still a lot to be figured out and discovered, but for us, we’re excited to be a part of this system. We want to continue to deliver on our games and our experiences that we provide," he said.

Moreno says he also believes more national attention will be directed to the Fiesta Bowl as a result of the changes.
