2022-23 NCAAF Bowl Season
- When: Friday, Dec. 16, 2022 – Monday, Jan. 9, 2023
What two bowls kick off the season on December 16?
On Friday, December 16, the HomeTown Lenders Bahamas Bowl and the Cure Bowl kick off bowl season. The HomeTown Lenders Bahamas Bowl takes place at the Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium in Nassau, Bahamas.
The Cure Bowl at Exploria Stadium in Orlando, FL. What’s interesting is that the Bahamas Bowl starts at 11:30 am ET and the Cure Bowl starts at 3:00 pm ET. Both games happen earlier in the day, which is different from what has happened in the past.
Which day is the most prolific for college football bowls?
6 bowl games happen on Saturday, December 17, which is 1 more bowl game than the 5 that take place on December 30. See below for a list of the bowl games and their scheduled kick off times.
- Wasabi Fenway Bowl – 11:00 am ET
- New Mexico Bowl – 2:15 pm ET
- Jimmy Kimmel L.A. Bowl Presented by Stifel – 3:30 pm ET
- LendingTree Bowl – 5:45 pm ET
- SRS Distribution Las Vegas Bowl – 7:30 pm ET
- Frisco Bowl – 9:15 pm ET
Way did the NCAAF move the top tradition New Year’s Day bowls from January 1 to January 2?
January 1 lands on a Sunday this season. There’s no way the top broadcasters in the United States, ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX, are going to miss out on NFL Week 17.
If the NCAA had kept the traditional bowl schedule, they’d get very few eyeballs for 4 massive bowl games. Check out the 4 that college football will play on Monday, January 2.
- ReliaQuest Bowl – 12:00 pm ET
- Citrus Bowl – 1:00 pm ET
- Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic – 1:00 pm ET
- Rose Bowl Game – 5:00 pm ET
Which two bowls make up this year’s College Football Playoff Semifinals?
4 bowls happen on December 31. The first couple start at 12:00 pm ET. The TransPerfect Music City Bowl and All-State Sugar Bowl kick off the festivities. The Sugar Bowl usually takes place during prime time. So the 12:00 pm kickoff is a change.
After the Sugar Bowl and Music City Bowl, the two College Football Playoff Semifinals take place. The times are to be determined.
The bowls will be the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia and the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
Where will the 2023 College Football National Championship take place?
The CFP National Championship presented by AT&T happens on Monday, January 9. The location is SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
SoFi is home to both the Los Angeles Chargers and the Los Angeles Rams. The stadium hosted Super Bowl 56, which the Rams won. No doubt, SoFi will join the running list of National Championship stadiums.
