Former Secretary of State and huge college football fan Condoleezza Rice has been named to the College Football Playoff selection committee in 2014 along with 12 others.

Other familiar names on the committee include former Nebraska coach Tom Osborne, former quarterback Archie Manning, Wisconsin Athletic Director Barry Alvarez, USC Athletic Director Pat Haden, and former Stanford and Notre Dame head coach Tyrone Willingham.
