I don't agree that the conference champion should get in automatically. Keep it as it is.

What happens if Pitt and Northwestern Win. There would be a 4 and 5 loss team in the playoffs. Expanding to 6 or 8 and guaranteeing the conference champion gets in would essentially make the regular season meaningless. There would be no incentive to schedule non-conference teams that are either quality or even in the FBS. This would lead to Notre Dame struggling to find quality opponents to schedule, forcing them to join a conference as they would be left out without a quality schedule. The committee would be more apt to put a UCF team in over Notre Dame due to the SOS and the extra win in the Conference Championship.
