Not too early to talk bowl games

    Cotton Bowl moves to Dec. 29 as part of small New Year’s Six shuffle

    The 82nd edition (of the Cotton Bowl) will be the earliest kickoff in the game’s history, which dates all the way back to 1937. The Cotton Bowl will not be a semifinal game this season so it makes plenty of sense to shift things around to allow the two teams involved get a bit more attention than they normally would have on December 30th.

    Surprisingly, this is only the third time ever that the bowl has been played in the month of December.

    Here’s the updated New Year’s Six/College Football Playoff schedule:

    Friday, December 29th: Cotton Bowl
    Saturday, December 30th: Orange Bowl, Fiesta Bowl
    Monday, January 1st: Peach Bowl, Rose Bowl (semifinal), Sugar Bowl (semifinal)

    Monday, January 8th: National Championship Game (Atlanta, GA)

    Not because anyone on the CFP Committee suddenly developed a lick of common sense but since the 31st fell on a Sunday did we not get the semifinal games on New Year's Eve.
