Are you ready for bowl season?

OK, summer hasn't even unofficially started with the Memorial Day weekend yet. But ESPN and released the dates and start times for most of the bowl games at the end of the 2021 college football season.

The first bowl games of the postseason start on Dec. 17. The Bahamas Bowl — a game that wasn't played in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic — gets things going. The final game of the postseason is on Jan. 10 when the two College Football Playoff semifinal winners meet in the national championship. 

This year's College Football Playoff semifinals are the Orange Bowl and the Cotton Bowl and they will be on Dec. 31. Cancel your New Year's Eve plans now. 

Below is the full schedule, both in graphic form and in list form. All times are Eastern. Three non-ESPN bowl games — the Holiday Bowl, the Redbox Bowl and the Arizona Bowl — have not announced dates yet.
