Regular season play wraps-up on the second Saturday in December.
All games played by member teams in the 10 conferences of Division I FBS fall within the regular season window. Most teams play 12 games during the regular season with eight or nine games against conference opponents. One game occurs each week with the exception of a scheduled bye or off week.
The NCAA Division I FBS postseason consists of 40 bowl games played in December or January after the regular season ends.
College teams competing in FBS conferences with winning records on the season are eligible for bowl games. In some instances, teams with 5-7 or 6-7 records have received bowl game berths to fill vacancies.
