Former USC defensive back Ronnie Lott was selected on the College Football Playoff selection committee.

The newest members of the College Football Playoff selection committee were announced on Wednesday, and one has a strong tie to Florida.

The 13-member committee, which is tasked with choosing the four best teams in the country, has to replace six people whose terms expire in February: Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt, Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich, former USA Today reporter Steve Wieberg, former Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long, former coach Tyrone Willingham and former NCAA executive Tom Jernstedt.

Mullens will be joined by several new members of the committee and they arrive as follows.

Athletic directors are recused - meaning they can't be present - during voting or deliberations about their team's selection or seeding, but may answer "factual questions" about their institution, according to CFP policy.

Boivin worked as a sports columnist for the Arizona Republic and now works at Arizona State's journalism school.

However, it is understood both Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two, will be enlisted as page boy and bridesmaid. The suspected candidates include stylist Jessica Mulroney, actress Priyanka Chopra, and tennis superstar Serena Williams.

Castiglione most recently was the chair of the men's basketball committee in 2015-16.

Sources told ESPN on Tuesday that Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione also would be added to the committee.

Lott played at USC and enjoyed a 14-year National Football League career.

Mullens is the athletic director at the University of Oregon.

While the connections might come in useful should Air Force, which went 5-7 this past season, enjoy a remarkable turnaround season or find itself as one of the top Group of Five teams in upcoming years.

We saw this evidenced by UCF's 13-0 season a year ago that was capped off by the Knights defeating Auburn in the Peach Bowl.
