College football’s 2019-20 bowl season kicks off on Friday, Dec. 20, and continues until the national championship in New Orleans, La., on Jan. 13. With the bowl lineup set and confidence pools and pick’em contests set to start on Dec. 20, three writers for Athlon Sports share predictions for every bowl.

Two games are scheduled for Friday, six games are slated for the first Saturday of action and two other matchups (Gasparilla and Hawaii) are on tap before Christmas. The bowl slate resumes after Christmas with two games on Dec. 26 and continues with matchups slated on Dec. 27-28 and again from Dec. 30-Jan. 4. The Jan. 1 schedule features four games, including the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl. 

The sixth College Football Playoff starts on Dec. 28, with LSU and Heisman winner Joe Burrow taking on Oklahoma. The Fiesta Bowl caps the semifinal round with an anticipated showdown between Ohio State and Clemson.
