College football bowl projections ahead of 2022 season, via CFB News
It’s never too early for college football projections ahead of the 2022 season, and thanks to College Football News’ Pete Fiutak, fans are getting another look at the playoffs. The full 43-game college football schedule was revealed last month, providing us with game dates, kick-off times and the TV schedule for your viewing pleasure. Next season’s College Football Playoff National Championship will be played at SOFI Stadium in Inglewood, California on January 9, 2023.
New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday, which means many bowl slate marquee games will be played on December 31, including the two playoff semifinal matchups in the Peach and Fiesta, respectively.
A few offseason notes as reminders – the annual Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla., was renamed ReliaQuest Bowl after losing its title sponsor after two decades. The game will be played Jan. 2 and will feature an SEC team against a Big Ten or ACC program.
