College football's bowl schedule for 2019-20 is slated to start on Dec. 20 and continues until the College Football Playoff National Championship on Jan. 13 in New Orleans. This season's bowl slate once again includes 39 contests, plus the national title following the two CFB Playoff games (Fiesta and Peach). Due to a scheduling quirk, the two semifinal games will be played on Dec. 28. The Jan. 13 date for the national championship means the winners of the semifinal games will have to wait 15 days before their showdown in New Orleans.
