Georgia head coach Kirby Smart believes teams that play tougher schedules would benefit from an expanded College Football Playoff.

"I think a lot of this is going to boil down to strength of schedule," Smart said Saturday on ESPN's "Marty & McGee." "For a long time now we have been trying to build up our future strength of schedule because it's not the losses that are going to kill you; it's not playing the best teams.

"We've tried to go out and schedule major Power 5s across our scheduling system all the way out with the hopes that this would give us the opportunity to go play some really good teams. And losses won't kill you when you start talking about (the) top 12. You've got to have a powerful schedule and go play good teams."
