2020-21 college football bowl schedule, games, scores, dates, opt outs, kickoff time, cancellations

College football just wrapped up its craziest regular season ever with every conference affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in one way or another as teams saw multiple games canceled or postponed. Now, the postseason is ready to get underway 56 teams receiving assignments to 28 bowl games.

If that sounds low, that’s because 16 bowl games have already been canceled due to a multitude of reasons including various bowl-eligible teams opting out of playing. Other games like the Rose Bowl and New Mexico Bowl have moved their locations due to local health restrictions. That leaves those 28 bowls, including the two College Football Playoff semifinals and four New Year’s Six games. 

Below is the entire remaining Bowl Season schedule with dates, times and network affiliations. As with everything else related to college football this fall, all information regarding bowl games is subject to change, including whether certain games are played at all. All times Eastern
