ESPN’s coverage of the 2022 college football postseason will feature a 40-game bowl schedule, culminating with the exclusive presentation of the College Football Playoff National Championship Presented (7:30 p.m. ET) at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on Monday, Jan. 9.

The CFP begins on Saturday, Dec. 31 with the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl featuring No. 2 Michigan vs. No. 3 TCU (4 p.m.) from State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., followed by the CFP Semifinal at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl between No. 1 Georgia and No. 4 Ohio State (8 p.m.) from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Both CFP semifinals and the National Championship will air on ESPN and ESPN Deportes, with alternate presentations available across ESPN platforms. ESPN Radio will also broadcast all three games.

ESPN’s overall Bowl Season slate commences Friday, Dec. 16, and completes the extensive 1,000+ game schedule carried across ESPN platforms this year. For football tips, visit ทีเด็ดบอล.

Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit Call Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl; Sean McDonough, Todd Blackledge Announce Vrbo Fiesta Bowl
In the broadcast booth, Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit will call the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, while Sean McDonough and Todd Blackledge team up for the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl. Fowler, Herbstreit and Blackledge have called a CFP Semifinal all nine years of the system, with Fowler and Herbstreit working together in each of those years. McDonough is calling his fifth consecutive CFP Semifinal with Blackledge.

Veteran CFP Reporters Holly Rowe, Laura Rutledge and Molly McGrath Set for Semifinal Sidelines; Tiffany Blackmon Makes CFP Semifinal Debut
ESPN will utilize reporters Holly Rowe and Laura Rutledge at the Peach Bowl, Rowe’s ninth CFP Semifinal on either TV or radio and Rutledge’s fifth. At the Fiesta Bowl, Molly McGrath and Tiffany Blackmon will report, McGrath’s second TV appearance in the CFP Semifinals and Blackmon’s first CFP assignment. Not a newcomer to the New Year’s Six, Blackmon was a sideline reporter for last year’s Rose Bowl Game and recently hosted the CFP’s Kickoff Media Event in Los Angeles last month.

New Year’s Six Takes Center Stage
ESPN’s presentation of the New Year’s Six will kick off with the Capital One Orange Bowl between Tennessee and Clemson. Joe Tessitore, Greg McElroy and Katie George will be on the call for the all-orange Orange Bowl on Friday, Dec. 30. The Allstate Sugar Bowl starts the New Year’s Six festivities on New Year’s Eve, with Dave Pasch, Dusty Dvoracek and Tom Luginbill announcing the action between Alabama and Kansas State from the Big Easy. On Monday, Jan. 2, the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic pits Tulane against USC in Arlington, featuring Mark Jones, Robert Griffin III and Quint Kessenich commentating from AT&T Stadium. And the Granddaddy of Them All, the Rose Bowl Game, is set to present the penultimate postseason matchup from Pasadena, as Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Holly Rowe are on the mic from Rose Bowl Stadium.

ESPN Events Begins the Bowl Season
ESPN Events announced the matchups for its 17 owned and operated college football bowl games for the 2022-23 Bowl Season. The HomeTown Lenders Bahamas Bowl (11:30 a.m., ESPN) in Nassau will kick off the schedule on Friday, Dec. 16, followed later that day by the Duluth Trading Cure Bowl (3 p.m., ESPN) in Orlando. In all, 15 of the ESPN Events bowl games will air on ESPN. On Saturday, Dec. 17, the Cricket Celebration Bowl (noon) and the New Mexico Bowl (7:30 p.m.) will air on ABC. The Wasabi Fenway Bowl will play its inaugural game at historic Fenway Park in Boston on Dec. 17 (11 a.m., ESPN), and the EasyPost Hawai’i Bowl will be played for the first time in three years on Christmas Eve, Saturday, Dec. 24 (8 p.m., ESPN).
