The College Football Playoff selection committee will have some star power as former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will join former NFL quarterback Archie Manning and USC athletic director Pat Haden on the panel, sources told ESPN on Friday. The 58-year-old Rice, who makes no secret of being a college and pro sports fan, will be named to the committee when it is officially announced next month. In addition, former Big East commissioner Mike Tranghese, athletic directors Barry Alvarez (Wisconsin), Jeff Long (Arkansas), Oliver Luck (West Virginia) and Dan Radakovich (Clemson), and former NCAA executive vice president Tom Jernstedt have been chosen to be on the committee, sources told ESPN.
Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Gould, the former Air Force Academy superintendent, will be on the committee as well, sources told The Associated Press.
