Get your remote ready: Here’s this year’s College Football Bowl Schedule

Football Generic Web

College football’s bowl season kicks off Saturday with a six-game slate that marks the beginning of a three-week run capped by the national championship game on Jan. 8.

The College Football Playoff semifinals will be held Jan. 1, with No. 3 Georgia squaring off against No. 2 Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl, followed by No. 4 Alabama and No. 1 Clemson in the Sugar Bowl.

There are also the “New Year’s Six” bowl games, one of which, the Fiesta Bowl, pits No. 9 Penn State against No. 19 Washington in a game that most Central Pennsylvania football fans already have marked on their calendars.

But those games are the main course of this football menu.

First, the appetizers, beginning with Saturday’s action. The first game on the slate is the Celebration Bowl, which pits Grambling against North Carolina A&T at noon.

Get ready, folks. It’s bowl season.
