The College Football Playoff is tripling in size to 12 teams for the 2024-25 season and will take up an even greater amount of the sport's postseason discourse. But the traditional bowl games aren't going anywhere, and college football fans will get plenty of non-CFP action to enjoy over December and early Januওary.

The 2024-25 college football bowl schedule was announced its full schedule on Thursday, which includes a full 𒁏mꩲenu of bowl games between FBS foes that are not part of the CFP. The action begins on Dec. 14 and will continue through Jan. 4 with the Bahamas Bowl. Of course, there will be college football later than ever this year as the CFP National Championship won't be contested until Jan. 20.

One wrinkle to note for the 2024-25 bowl season is that the former Pac-12 schools that are now members of the ACC, Big 12 and Big Ten ꧂still retain their prior bowl affiliations, according to a . So if a bowl previously held a Pac-12 tie in, those bowls will be picking the league's former members when matchups are announced on Dec. 8.

CBS will continue broadcasting the Tony th📖e Tiger Sun Bowl. Kick is set for 2 p.m. on Dec. 31 in El Paso, Texas.

Below is a detailed look at the complete schedule for the 2024-25 college football season, including dates, locations and TV channels. All times are Eastern.
