With college football’s 2020 regular season totally reworked amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it makes sense that its postseason has also been shuffled around. The new format, rebranded officially as “Bowl Season,” features an ever-changing number of games culminating with the 2021 College Football Playoff National Championship on Jan. 11. 

As part of the modified bowl season, a number of games have been canceled. Gone, at least for this year, are 10 bowls: Redbox, Hawai’i, Bahamas, Holiday, Quick Lane, Pinstripe, Sun, Fenway, Celebration, Las Vegas, LA.

Below is the entire remaining Bowl Season schedule with dates, times and network affiliations.

Unlike in years past, bowl games are being announced ahead of Selection Sunday. Those can be found in the upper portion of this story along with the full schedule below. As with everything else related to college football this fall, all information regarding bowl games is subject to change. All times Eastern
