NCAAF Bowl Schedules
The College Football Playoff semifinals are planned to take place on New Year’s Eve once again this year. The Fiesta Bowl and the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl will host the games this time around. Due to the fact that New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, there will be no games played on that day. Instead, the Cotton Bowl and the Rose Bowl will be played on January 2.
The Orange Bowl will be played on December 30, and the Sugar Bowl will be played the day before the semifinals on December 31. Both of these games are considered to be among the most important in the NCAAF season. The first games of the playoffs will be played on Friday, December 16, and they are the Bahamas Bowl and the Cure Bowl.
Because the semifinals will take place on New Year’s Eve for the second year in a row, much of the attention of the fans will be focused on the race for the title. The league moved some of the games of the date in prior years, only keeping them when the date fell on a Friday or Saturday, as it happened the last time around.
After that, the championship will be held on January 9 in Inglewood, California, between the two teams. It will take place at SoFi Stadium, which was the venue for the Super Bowl victory that the Los Angeles Rams took home.

Brief CFB History
College Football bowl games are a number of postseason college football games that are played by teams from the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision. The term “bowl game” is generally used in the U.S. to refer to any one of these events.
The word “bowl” was initially used in reference to the postseason college football games played at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California, where betting on college bowl games point spreads was very popular. In turn, the Rose Bowl Stadium got its name and bowl-shaped form from the Yale Bowl, which was the blueprint for many football stadiums in the country at the time. In 2010, there were 35 team-competitive games, providing plenty of opportunities to make money with college bowl games’ point spreads.
