Nothing makes a college football fan fall in love with winter quite like bowl season.

Bowl season is the absolute best with two-plus straight weeks of college football postseason action. Yes, of course that includes the College Football Playoff bracket playing out and a national champion being crowned, but there are also nearly 80 other teams who are playing for one last taste of victory.

There won't be any Christmas Eve or Christmas Day games thanks to the NFL taking over on that Sunday and Monday. However, there is still a plethora of fun matchups that should put smiles on the faces of college football fans.

So which bowl games are when and who's playing? Let's take a look at the full college football bowl schedule.
