IRVING, Texas — The College Football Playoff is expanding its program to help pay travel expenses for parents and guardians of players to also include the national semifinal games.

For the first national championship game in the new playoff last January, the organization distributed $500,000 — up to $2,500 for each player from Ohio State and Oregon — to assist families with travel, food and hotel costs associated with attending the game in Arlington, Texas.

The organization said Tuesday that the expense-reimbursement program will extend to teams in the semifinals.

The NCAA earlier this year provided similar reimbursement to the families of athletes in the men’s and women’s basketball Final Fours as part of a pilot program.
