College Football Bowl Schedule, 2019-2020: Who takes home this year’s title?

The playoff may be down to four teams, but there are 40 games that will finish off the 2019 college football season.

NCAA Football: Pac-12 Media Day Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

We all know about the big four. College football’s 2019 season has come down to LSU, Ohio State, Clemson, and Oklahoma to decide the national champion of major college football. But while the Peach Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, and National Championship game will define the title winner, there are still 37 other games going on, starting on Friday, December 20th.

Everything gets underway that afternoon with the Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl, and games run for nearly a month until the championship on January 13th. In that time, we’ll have everything from the thrilling semifinals to a great Wisconsin-Oregon matchup in the Rose Bowl to...well, a Western Kentucky-Western Michigan game in the First Responder Bowl that this writer must, by law, tune in for given my name.

40 total games will provide football fans with nearly-nonstop action over the next several weeks. So tune in for the games and discuss any and all of them in the comments here.

And a Merry Bowlmas to all!
