The schedule for this year’s college football season will look different in the COVID-19 era. Instead of the normal Labor Day Weekend start, three Power Five conferences didn’t kick off until later in September. The Big Ten and Pac-12 started even later.
The regular season almost reaches the holidays with the end of year holidays with the conference championship games planned for the second and third week of December. The College Football Playoff remains on schedule with the semifinals on Jan. 1. The final game of the season will take place at the championship game on Jan. 11, 2020 in Miami Gardens, Florida.
Below are games scheduled for national networks, with listed times p.m. Eastern unless otherwise noted. Dates and times are subject to change.
