 IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds believes the new College Football Playoff could use one more round.

   Dodds says the four-team playoff system that will begin with the 2014 season is a good `baby step." The longtime playoff proponent would like to see eight teams.

   Speaking Thursday at the Big 12 meetings, Dodds said a four-team playoff still leaves a lot of conversation about the fifth team that doesn't get in, maybe an 11-1 team because of a 12-0 team not quite as good. Dodds says there wouldn't be as much debate about a ninth team.

   West Virginia AD Oliver Luck says "let's give four a shot" and see what happens.

   Neither Dodds nor Luck want to be on the committee that will select the playoff teams.
