The NCAA has approved two new bowl games for the 2015–16 season, bringing the total number of games to 41. The complete schedule can be found below. 

The two games added to the schedule are an unnamed game in Tuscon, Ariz., between teams from the Mountain West and Conference USA, and the AutoNation Cure Bowl in Orlando between the American Athletic Conference and the Sun Belt. 

ESPN's Brett McMurphy had reported last month that NCAA also certified a bowl game in Austin, Texas, but that game will not begin until 2016, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

The semifinals of the College Football Playoff will be played at the Orange Bowl and Cotton Bowl on New Year's Eve. The national championship will be held in Glendale, Ariz., on January 11.
