The bowl season kicks off with five games on Dec. 19 and continues with 12 matchups before Christmas. The post-Christmas slate features six contests on Dec. 26 and continues with several intriguing matchups until Dec. 31 when the New Year’s Six games take over. The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl between Florida State and Houston is the first game on Dec. 31, followed by the two playoff games and then the usual Jan. 1 slate.
