College Bowl Games
The wait will soon be over for those curious to see how the College Football Playoff ultimately plays out. The full postseason slate was revealed on Dec. 7, though the inaugural College Football Playoff semifinal matchups in particular were quickly thrust into the forefront of analysis and debate regarding whether the selection committee had gotten it right on the first try.
While the first College Football Playoff rankings released in October featured SEC teams (Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Auburn) in three of the top-four slots, only the reigning national champion Florida State Seminoles remained in the running come selection time.
By December, four different conferences had produced playoff-worthy teams according to the committee, as Alabama (SEC), Oregon (Pac-12), Florida State (ACC), and Ohio State (Big Ten) officially became the first four teams that will compete in the College Football Playoff.
In light of the new format, the two semifinal contests (Sugar Bowl, Rose Bowl) and four notable bowl games (Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, Orange Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Fiesta Bowl) have been dubbed the “New Year’s Six,” which essentially spotlights the year’s biggest postseason contests.
College bowl games are set to take place across the country beginning with the New Orleans Bowl on Dec. 20 and culminating on Jan. 12 with the 2015 College Football Championship game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. You can find our full selection of NCAA Bowl Game tickets here
