With championship week in college football finally here, it’s almost time to learn of the pairings for the College Football Playoff and entire upcoming bowl season.
The regular season has provided plenty of drama, culminating with 10 conference championship games before Sunday’s bowl selection show.
The matchups that everyone will be talking about, of course, are the College Football Playoff games. This year’s Playoff games are the Fiesta Bowl and Peach Bowl in the semifinals and the championship game, which will be hosted at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
Sunday’s College Football Playoff bowl selection show will reveal the details about the upcoming games and schedule for bowl season.
Here’s a guide to everything to need to follow along with the College Football Playoff selection show, including start time, TV channel and more for the final CFP ranking reveal and complete 2019-20 bowl schedule.

No. 1 Ohio State, No. 2 LSU and No. 3 Clemson are in win-and-in situations entering conference championship weekend. No. 5 Utah and No. 6 Oklahoma also need to take care of business in their respective title games in the hope of leap-frogging No. 4 Georgia should it lose to LSU in the SEC championship game.
A win by the Bulldogs would guarantee safe passage to the Playoff. The question then is whether the committee prefers one-loss LSU over the Big 12 or Pac-12 champion.
