2021 Bowl Games: Schedule, College Football Playoff teams, kickoff times, dates, NCAA top 25 rankings Leave a comment



The College Football Playoff bracket and 2021-22 bowl schedule is officially set as the sport moves its attention to the postseason and its much-anticipated conclusion. Cincinnati made history as the first Group of Five school to make the CFP, and it’s fitting that the Bearcats’ debut comes against the playoff’s most familiar returning face in Alabama. They will meet in the Cotton Bowl.


Michigan, also making its first playoff appearance, will square off with Georgia in the other national semifinal. Jim Harbaugh and Kirby Smart enter this New Year’s Eve showdown in the Orange Bowl coming off extremely different results in their respective conference championship games. 


But bowl season’s excitement extends far beyond the playoff with interesting matchups up and down the busy schedule. Everything from Ohio State and Utah in the Rose Bowl to Oregon and Oklahoma in the Alamo Bowl packs plenty of intrigue, as does Marcus Freeman making his Notre Dame head coaching debut against Oklahoma State in the Fiesta Bowl.
