College Football Bowl Schedule 2022-2023

Last Updated: Dec 5, 2022

December is here, which means it’s time to go bowling — college bowling, that is.

The NCAA football bowl schedule is about to start. College football is one of the most popular betting sports in the United States, and bowl betting is a hallmark of the holiday season.

Here’s a look at the 2023 bowl season schedule and how to wager on those games.

When Does The 2022-2023 Bowl Season Begin?

The 42-game NCAA football bowl season will kick off with the Bahamas Bowl on Dec. 16. The bowl season will run through the College Football Playoff national championship game at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California on Jan. 9.

The two College Football Playoff semifinal matchups are set, with top-ranked and defending champion Georgia essentially playing a home game against No. 4 Ohio State at the Chick Fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta at 8 p.m. on New Years Eve.

The Peach Bowl will serve as the nightcap of a semifinal doubleheader. The early game will pit second-ranked Michigan against No. 3 Texas Christian in the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl at 4 p.m. ET. Michigan has not won an undisputed national championship in football since 1948. TCU is aiming for its second national title and first since 1938.

How Can I Bet on the NCAAF Bowls?

With round-the-clock games, and ample off time for most of us around the holidays, betting on the college-football bowl season adds some juice to the action. There are upsets, trick plays and wild finishes since most of the teams playing have little to lose.

Plus, with the College Football Playoff semifinals and national-championship game, there are titles on the line.

Betting on the games is as easy as signing up for an online sportsbook account, as long as you live in a state where sports betting is legal. You simply enter your real info, verify it then deposit and start placing bets on bowl action of your choosing.

If someone gave you a BetMGM or Caesars gift card as a holiday gift then that’s even better. You’ll have those funds to use instead of your own hard-earned money.

Cashing in on an upset pick, or winning real money when your favorite team or alma mater wins, adds a tangible victory and makes the bowls more exciting and entertaining.

Plus, each sportsbook has a new-signup offer and new-user bonus like second-chance bets or bet-and-gets that lengthens your ability to play during bowl season.
