Here are some further details:

Criteria to be on the committee: Integrity, football expertise, objectivity, ability to carefully evaluate and experience making decisions under scrutiny

Unlike the BCS, there is no limit to the number of teams from each conference.

Playoff committee will meet four times a year starting in midseason and release rankings four times every other week.

Playoff committee will consider conference championships, strength of schedule, head-to-head, and comparative outcomes of common opponents.

Committee members will serve three-year terms, with the exception of the first committee, which will be staggered so all don’t leave at the same time.

Tentatively, the CFB Playoff will put out 4-5 rankings of a Top 25 near the end of the season, around the time the BCS Rankings came out.
