OSU and WSU joint statement on CFP revenue reduction starting in 2026

March 15, 2024

The College Football Playoff’s decision to drastically reduce the Pac-12 Conference’s rightful share of CFP revenues beginning in 2026 means that the future financial gap we are challenged to solve may widen significantly. Our commitment to student-athletes, however, remains unquestioned, and the excellence of OSU’s and WSU’s athletics programs cannot be denied. We have proven we are up to these challenges. Negotiations with the CFP continue, and we continue to explore all options on behalf of student-athletes and our universities.
