College football bowl schedule: 19 games slated for this week

By Kevin Kelley -

The college football bowl schedule for the 2023-24 season resumes on Tuesday after a two-day break. Overall, 19 games are slated for Tuesday through Saturday.

Due to Christmas Eve falling on a Sunday and Christmas Day slotting in on Monday, no college football bowl games were played due to NFL action.

Three contests are on the bowl schedule on Tuesday, Dec. 26, beginning at 2:00pm ET with the Quick Lane Bowl in Detroit, Mich. The Bowling Green Falcons will take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers in that contest on ESPN and simulcast on ESPN+.

The SERVPRO First Responder Bowl featuring Texas State vs. Rice and the Guaranteed Rate Bowl featuring Kansas vs. UNLV follow at 5:30pm ET and 9:00pm ET, respectively, and each contest will be televised by ESPN with streaming via ESPN+.
