Money. Plain and simple.I don't understand this really, why limit yourself to one conference. If I was the president of the SEC I would have said no way to this game.
That is true, but it will still be big, even if both top teams are in the playoffs. Think of it as the Cotton Bowl with better picks.Well the champ of each conference should be in the NC playoff or at least one will be and if it's like last year the top two teams from one conference will be in the playoff. The game won't have the same hype if it was the top team from each.

Tweaks need to be made sure, and they are in that process, but IMO, we already have that in a pro league. I would hate for the college game to mirror that, to that extent anyway.College football really needs to redo their conferencing system and especially their playoff system, as in get an actual playoff system!
Heck if it got down to the the top teams of the sec and big 12 already being in the playoff system, they could drop all the way down to grabbing texas tech to play texas.. That would be a great sellout. Or missouri or tech playing against any big 12 team would draw an interest.
