Likely rule changes for college football:
Instant Replay has 2 minutes to resolve an issue. After that the call on the field stands.
Targeting penalty stays as is but guilty player can stay in the team area.

Is USC a member of the Association of American Universities? Asking for a friend.
University of  Southern California
Academic affiliations
AAU
NAICU
APRU
So are, among others, Cal,.UCLA, Oregon, Arizona and Colorado.  LA and Denver would be interesting markets should, oh, a Midwestern Conference with an eye to growth of its TV footprint look to expand.

Though USC is a private college which does not really fit the culture.
Hefty travel fees for the non-revenue teams make it a non-starter.

I assume that is a rhetorical question?

In any case, since the answer was yes, the reason for the down turn in ratings on NY6 games is simply because they were "not" all on New Year's Day?  And everyone still seems to be learning that lesson?
“Everyone has figured it out” . The problem is no one has away to solve it.
 Not as long as the Pac12, the BIG, and the Rose Bowl remain in contract along with the SEC and the Sugar Bowl.

LSU’s national championship game victory against Clemson drew nearly 26 million viewers to ESPN, up slightly from last year’s final.

ESPN said Tuesday that viewership for the three-game College Football Playoff increased 4% from last season, when Clemson beat Alabama in the championship.

The network’s championship game megacast, which includes ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPNews, drew 25.6 million viewers. Last year’s megacast had 25.3 million viewers. The ESPN-only audience was also up over last year, from 24.3 million to 25 million.

Joe Burrow, the Heisman Trophy winner, led No. 1 LSU to a 42-25 victory Monday night in New Orleans. The game was 28-25 in the third quarter before LSU surged and put away the title early in the fourth quarter.

Overall, the television audience for New Year’s Six games were down 4% over last year for ESPN

 LSU’s passing game coordinator Joe Brady has told people today that he is planning to return to the NFL and the Carolina Panthers, per league sources.
Enjoy the replays of 2019, LSU without Burrow and Brady, may not be the same again.

The CFP has a new Champion, but the format is not changing anytime soon, if ever.
Bill Hancock the front man for the old BCS and now the CFP was reappointed yesterday reaffirming his support of the college Predidents and the CFP Committee and, moreover, their desire not to change the four team format. With still six years left on the CFP contract with ESPN  all stakeholders seem contented not to change a system that keeps producing undisputed champions.
