The full college football bowl game schedule for the upcoming 2022 season was released Thursday, and it features 43 contests spanning three weeks in December and January. Action begins on Dec. 16 with the Bahamas Bowl and runs through Jan. 9, when a College Football Playoff national champion will be crowned at SOFI Stadium in Inglewood, California.

Highlighting the early schedule is a loaded seven-game slate on Saturday, December 17. With New Year’s Day falling on a Sunday, there are no bowls scheduled for Jan. 1, which makes for a strange quirk on a day that is typically significant in college football’s postseason. Instead, New Year’s Eve and Jan. 2 will be among the biggest dates this postseason.

Both CFP semifinal games – the Peach Bowl and Fiesta Bowl – are set for Dec. 31, while the Cotton Bowl, Citrus Bowl and Rose Bowl will be played Jan. 2. Bowl participants will be unveiled on Sunday, December 4 after conference championship games have been decided.

CBS will once again carry the Sun Bowl on Dec. 30 in El Paso, Texas.

Below is the entire schedule for bowl games with dates, times and network affiliations. All information regarding bowl games is subject to change. All times are Eastern.
