Forty-one college football games are slated to take place from Dec. 15 thru Jan. 7 for the 2018-19 bowl season, culminating in the College Football Playoff National Championship on Jan. 7 from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.

On Dec. 29, the late-afternoon College Football Playoff Semifinal game will feature ACC champion Clemson Tigers versus undefeated Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the Cotton Bowl in Arlington, Tex. Then, in prime time, the other College Football Playoff Semifinal game features SEC champion Alabama Crimson Tide versus Big 12 champion Oklahoma Sooners in the Orange Bowl in Miami, Fla.

The Fiesta Bowl features No. 11 LSU vs. No. 8 UCF (Jan. 1 at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN), as the Knights participate in their second consecutive New Year’s Six game and look to extend the nation’s longest winning streak to 26 games. LSU is participating in its first New Year’s Six game.  The Rose Bowl Game (Jan. 1 at 5 p.m. ET on ESPN) features the traditional matchup of the Pac-12 Champion vs. the Big Ten Champion, as No. 9 Washington plays No. 6 Ohio State. It is the Huskies first trip to Pasadena since 2001 and the Buckeyes first since 2011. It’ll also be the final game for Urban Meyer as head coach of Ohio State. The Sugar Bowl (Jan. 1 at 8:45 p.m. ET on ESPN) will conclude New Year’s Six as No. 15 Texas plays No. 5 Georgia, in a traditional Big 12-SEC matchup.
