2018 Bowl Games: Schedule, announcements, College Football Playoff teams

With the selection process in the distant past and college football bowl season completely underway, we have hit the halfway point with the biggest games still yet to come. The College Football Playoff field features four of the best and most consistent teams this season, and the New Year's Six matchups have resulted in some intriguing pairings that should result in plenty of debate and discussion as the process plays out. With 39 bowl games on the entire slate and most off them taking place before the years is out, there is still plenty of action left to enjoy.

CBS Sports was with you the entire day throughout the bowl selection process updating this page with every new bowl game announcement, beginning with the CFP field all the way through the first set of games on Dec. 15. Check out the entire CFP along with the New Year's Six games below and keep scrolling for the remainder of the bowl slate.
