Without a doubt, New Year’s Eve features the best college football action up to this point in the bowl season. We’ve got four must-see matchups, including the semifinals of the College Football Playoff. That’s right. After the dust settles and the last bottle of André is crushed, we will know which two teams will face off for the National Championship.

But it’s not just the semifinals that are intriguing, as we also have the Citrus and TaxSlayer Bowls. The games begin at 11:00 a.m. ET, so you need to pace yourself if you’re going to see the ball drop at midnight. Make sure to mix in a water or two, and in the words of Kevin McCallister “a lovely cheese pizza just for me,” would be a smart move as well.

Now that you know you’re in for a glorious day of college football, let’s break down how you can keep up with all four games.
