It’s official. The college football bowl season schedule has been set.
ESPN will televise 31 of the 37 bowl games, starting with the Tropical Smoothie Café Frisco Bowl on Dec. 19 and concluding with the College Football Playoff National Championship on Jan. 11.
Once the bowl season starts, there will be at least one game every day through Jan. 2, except for the two Sundays in that time frame.
The College Football Playoff begins New Year’s Day, with the Rose Bowl Game and Allstate Sugar Bowl serving as semifinal hosts. Those games will be preceded that day by the TicketSmarter Birmingham Bowl, Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl and Vrbo Citrus Bowl.
The Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic will be the first among the New Year’s Six bowl games to be played, on Dec. 30, with the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl and Capital One Orange Bowl taking place Jan. 2.
Two new games, the Montgomery Bowl (Dec. 23) and LA Bowl (Dec. 30), join the lineup.
