PAC to run ad promoting college football playoff

WASHINGTON (AP) - A new political action committee plans to run ads this week pushing for a playoff system for college football.

Playoff PAC says it will run the ads in Dallas, Salt Lake City and Boise, Idaho ahead of Thursday's national championship game between Texas and Alabama.

The ad highlights the fact that two undefeated teams, TCU and Boise State, are not getting a chance to play for the title. The two schools face off Monday night in the Fiesta Bowl.

The ad also includes comments from Bill Hancock, the executive director of the Bowl Championship Series, saying not everyone can play in a championship game.

A copy of the ad, which also will run on the Web, was obtained by The Associated Press.
