College football TV schedule: Bowl season, FCS playoffs and championships

Scott Cunningham

Only two college football games this weekend? Not so fast. D2, D3 and NAIA football will see their champions crowned and the FCS title game participants will be determined, in addition to two bowl games.

If championship football is your thing (championship football is everybody's thing), this is the weekend for you. Three levels of college football will crown their national champions, and another will figure out which two teams will play for the country's highest college football playoff title. Oh, and bowl season starts.
