President Obama called the installation of the new college football playoff system “one promise kept” at a campaign event Wednesday at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: I came here today because I heard you’ve got a pretty fun football team to watch. Undefeated, if I’m not mistaken. A shot at the MAC championship, maybe a BCS bid. I just want to point out that I was pushing for a playoff system — we got a playoff system. One more promise kept for those of you who are following college football.
