College football bowl games schedule for 2014-2015

Below, the full bowl schedule, from Playoff games to the New Orleans Bowl.

SB Nation 2014 College Football Guide

The inaugural College Football Playoff's field is set. We knew Alabama and Oregon will be the top two seeds. We know the Tide will host in Nola and the Ducks are going to Pasadena. We know Florida State's in. And we now the fourth spot is Ohio State over Baylor and TCU.

We've also got an idea of how the rest of bowl season shakes out. The committee's expected rankings, each bowl's conference ties, and a notion of how college football works can get you close to guessing how December and January will look.

As for the big question, it was surely close. TCU already ranked No. 3 and beat Iowa State by 52 points. Baylor added a ranked win over Kansas State and could finally get head-to-head credit over the Frogs.

But it's the Buckeyes. Ohio State will have beaten as many ranked teams as Baylor did and one more than TCU did, and OSU's were away from home by multiple scores. OSU played 10 bowl teams in 13 games, compared to TCU's seven in 12 and Baylor's six in 12. And Saturday, Ohio State beat former No. 13 Wisconsin, 59-0.

I've spared you the conference orders and so forth, but if you're interested, those are now in the comments here.
