College Football Playoff Schedule, TV Broadcast Info

    The teams have been announced and are ready. Here is your College Football Playoff schedule, along with TV broadcast info for Clemson vs. Oklahoma and Alabama vs. Michigan State.

    December 6, 2015

    The regular season is in the books and just four teams will now battle it out for the coveted College Football Playoff National Championship. 

    Top-seeded Clemson posted a perfect 13-0 record and is seeking its first national title since 1981. The Tigers will take on Baker Mayfield and the No. 4-seeded Oklahoma Sooners in the Capital One Orange Bowl in Miami. The winner earns a trip to Glendale to play in the championship game.
    In Arlington, Texas, No. 2-seeded Alabama will make its second straight College Football Playoff appearance. Waiting for the Crimson Tide is the No. 3-seeded Michigan State Spartans of the Big Ten. The Spartans are seeking their first national title since 1966. Just like with the Orange Bowl, the Cotton Bowl winner will head west for the title showdown.
    Below is the College Football Playoff schedule, including kickoff times and TV broadcast info. 

    2015-16 College Football Playoff Schedule

    Capital One Orange Bowl: No. 1 Clemson vs. No. 4 Oklahoma

    Date: Thursday, December 31
    Time: 4:00 p.m. ET
    Venue: Sun Life Stadium, Miami Gardens, FL
    TV: ESPN

    This game features a rematch from last year’s Russell Athletic Bowl. The Clemson Tigers won that one handily, thumping the Oklahoma Sooners by 34 points. Clemson once again features an explosive offense, led by quarterback Deshaun Watson. Oklahoma, however, is arguably the hottest team in the country behind the play of quarterback Baker Mayfield. This one has fireworks written all over it.

    Goodyear Cotton Bowl: No. 2 Alabama vs. No. 3 Michigan State

    Date: Thursday, December 31
    Time: 8:30 p.m. ET
    Venue: AT&T Stadium Arlington, TX
    TV: ESPN

    While the Orange Bowl matchup screams high-octane offense, this one is the opposite. Both Alabama and Michigan State feature stout defenses and pro-style, win-in-the-trenches type offenses. Alabama RB Derrick Henry has been a force for the Tide this season, rushing for 1,986 yards to break Herschel Walker’s SEC single-season record. Michigan State QB Connor Cook has been the center of attention for Michigan State’s attack, but does have a supporting cast of playmakers. If you like smash-mouth football, this is the matchup for you.
