2022 Bowl Games: Schedule, College Football Playoff teams, dates, kickoff times, NCAA top 25 rankings


The College Football Playoff, New Years six and the full bowl schedule for 2022-23 was released on Sunday, and the flurry of announcements kicked off the start of the sport’s postseason. The CFP had little controversy as Georgia, Michigan and TCU all held on to their orders from last week CFP rankings with Ohio State sliding into the playoff field after USC’s loss to Utah in the Pac-12 Championship Game. Although Alabama fans and coach Nick Saban did a lot of work to advocate for the Crimson Tide, the CFP selection committee stuck to its guidelines.

The CFP semifinal matchups provide plenty of intrigue as Ohio State has now revitalized after losing to Michigan and can boast a roster as talented as undefeated Georgia when the two blue bloods collide in the Peach Bowl in Atlanta. In the other semifinal, the Fiesta Bowl, Michigan is seeking its first-ever playoff victory against a TCU program that is the 14th program to appear in the event during the first nine iterations.

Outside of the playoffs, there’s still a lot to get excited about as we look ahead to the bowling season. Tulane plays in his biggest bowl game since the 1939 season facing USC in the Cotton Bowl. There is an all-orange Orange Bowl on deck featuring Clemson and Tennessee. The Rose Bowl could become another instant classic, pitting Utah against Penn State.

There are also great stories and fun combinations in the bowl scheme that need your attention. Steve Sarkisian should have Texas tuned and ready for a possible shootout against Washington in the Alamo Bowl. Florida State Coach Mike Norvell is also bowling for the first time since taking over the Seminoles, and for their Year 1 bowl matchup, they are seeded against Oklahoma with Brent Venables at the end of Year 1.
