Championship weekend is officially over and the final regular season College Football Playoff rankings have been released with the top four not being what everyone expected. Clemson, Oklahoma, and Georgia are one through three, but Alabama took the fourth spot despite not appearing in the SEC Championship Game. Now, the college football bowl schedule has been released in full and here is how you know when, where, and who to watch.

There are always going to be those who believe the college football playoffs will never be fair until there is a full tournament-style version of it. As reported by ESPN, Alabama was awarded the fourth spot in the rankings over Ohio State and that has left a lot of fans angry and believing the whole thing is a sham.

Now, the Clemson Tigers will take on the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Allstate Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1, 2018. On that same day, the Oklahoma Sooners will face off against the Georgia Bulldogs in the Rose Bowl. The winners of those two games will face off in the College Football Playoff National Championship on Jan. 8.

Ohio State ended up in the Cotton Bowl against USC in AT&T Stadium on Dec. 29, 2017.

As for the rest of the college football bowl season, there are going to be plenty of games for fans to enjoy throughout December and into early January. Here is the full schedule of all games to let you know who is playing where, when you can watch them, and on what channel.
