The 2021 college football regular season has reached its conclusion, but there’s still plenty of action left. Conference championship week is coming up and bowl season is right around the corner. The 2021-22 bowl schedule has been announced, and it looks to be a three-and-a-half week extravaganza over the holidays. The postseason will culminate with the College Football Playoff National Championship on Jan. 10, 2022 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
