The 2020 college football season comes down to this: three games to decide the national champion.
The first two of those games will take place on the traditional New Year’s Day date, albeit with a twist. Due to issues of COVID-19 pandemic in the state of California, the Rose Bowl matchup between No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Notre Dame has been moved to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas; it is only the second Rose Bowl Game in history to take place outside of Pasadena, Calif.
The Sugar Bowl matchup between No. 2 Clemson and No. 3 Clemson is more standard, although the Mercedes-Benz Superdome is only allowing a grand total of 3,000 participants to watch the semifinal. Regardless, this game could get chippy after last year’s controversial Fiesta Bowl, which saw two calls favor Clemson in a close Tigers win. Coaches Dabo Swinney and Ryan Day have already added to the heat ahead of this year’s game, too.
With that, Sporting News has you covered on how to watch the College Football Playoff, from the Jan. 1 semifinals to the championship game 10 days later:
