The tenth edition continues the powerful tradition of using the game as the ultimate platform for showcasing the best of college football.

IRVING, Texas (Jan. 10, 2024) – The National Football Foundation (NFF) & College Hall of Fame salutes the College Football Playoff (CFP) and its staff, led by CFP Executive Director Bill Hancock, for their exceptional efforts in staging the 10th CFP National Championship. The organization also congratulates the Houston College Football Playoff National Championship Host Committee for their hospitality in organizing multiple first-class events.

"The CFP has produced a fabulous decade of memories and experiences for countless players, coaches and fans," said NFF Chairman Archie Manning. "The CFP National Championship has truly become one of the most compelling gatherings in all of sports, significantly expanding the interest in college football, and the game's success is a testament to our country's love of college football. Bill Hancock and the CFP staff each year have successfully transformed an entire city into a magnificent showcase for college football, highlighting everything right with our great game as well as the region's unique local assets."

"I would be remiss if I did not take this opportunity to congratulate Bill on his retirement. He has been a great friend to the NFF and everyone in college football, and we took great pleasure in presenting him with the NFF Outstanding Contributions to Amateur Football Award in December, which was richly deserved. Bill's leadership leaves a lasting legacy, including the expansion of the playoffs to a 12-team format, which promises to add a whole new level of excitement, and we look forward to working with Lieutenant General Richard Clark as he works to build on the path that Bill has helped forge."
