College football bowl game schedule for the 2023-24 season: A full guide for fans.

Published

on

Think of the college football postseason is more a marathon than a sprint. There’s 42 games running from the first series of matchups on Dec. 16 through the College Football Playoff championship game on Jan. 8.

The ending of a college football is bittersweet. It’s as the song goes “the most wonderful of time of the year” but also the ending of another season for the sport until we see it again next August.

The playoff semifinals will be held on Jan. 1 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, and the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. The national title game is being held at NRG Stadium in Houston.

But there’s plenty of other intriguing games to watch. Here’s the entire lineup:
