Before the final two teams meet up for the national championship on Jan. 8, the road to Atlanta will be winding through 40 bowl games. The ones that don’t have College Football Playoff implications will still be used as a springboard for next season, one final measuring stick game that encapsulates a season.

There are no playoff games on New Year's Eve this season, with the semifinals starting the next day with the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl.
