NCAA College Football wraps this month with LIVE coverage on ESPN of a full lineup of Bowl Games plus the new College Football Playoff
It’s the start of an exciting new era in NCAA College Football, which wraps the regular season this month. ESPN presents LIVE coverage of the traditional season-ending Bowl Games, followed by the College Football Playoff (CFP) to crown a new champion. The new postseason format creates an exciting four-team playoff – with two semifinals played in bowl games – that preserves all the excitement of the regular season while respecting the long bowl tradition that fans love so much.
ESPN’s lineup in December includes wall-to-wall coverage of the traditional bowl games, followed in January by the CFP Bowls, led by the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Discover Orange Bowl, AT&T Cotton Bowl and the two Playoff Bowls this year, the Rose Bowl and Allstate Sugar Bowl. Defending national champion Florida State (ACC) remains a favorite to make a CFP appearance this season, joined by the Big-12’s Oklahoma, Pac-12’s Oregon, and a tough SEC contingent led by Alabama, Auburn and Texas A&M.
Coverage airs LIVE all month on ESPN, which includes the Heisman Trophy Presentation to honor the season’s top player airing December 14, 12:00pm. Stay tuned in January for the CFP and the crowning of a new national champion at the Championship Game in Arlington, Texas. NOTE: Schedule not all-inclusive; other games may air during the month.
