This year, the two national semifinal games that will make up the 2020 College Football Playoff will be the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl and the Playstation Fiesta Bowl. These matchups will feature No. 1 vs. No. 4 and No. 2 vs. No. 3 in some order. The winner of those two games will meet for the national championship at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans in early January.
The four other games of note that will be revealed by this Selection Committee will be the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic, the Capital One Orange Bowl, the Rose Bowl presented by Northwestern Mutual and the Allstate Sugar Bowl.
A Group of 5 team will play an at-large team in the Cotton Bowl and the other three New Year’s Six Bowls have certain conference affiliations attached to them. Playing in the Orange Bowl will be an ACC team vs. either a Big Ten team, an SEC team or Notre Dame. The Rose Bowl will be between a Big Ten team and a Pac-12 team. The Sugar Bowl features a Big 12 team and an SEC team.
Of course, the top-seeded team deemed by the Selection Committee will have its choice of national semifinal venue. The top seed can play at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona for the Fiesta Bowl or it can play at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia for the Peach Bowl. We’re so close to the playoff, we can almost taste it. Let’s see what the Selection Committee decides.
