The Florida Gators and Virginia Cavaliers will go toe-to-toe Dec. 30 in the Capital One Orange Bowl on ESPN.  Coverage is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. EST.

The Oregon Ducks and Wisconsin Badgers will take to the field Jan.1 in the Rose Bowl presented by Northwestern Mutual.  ESPN will cover that game, too, with the broadcast beginning at 5 p.m. EST.

The Allstate Sugar Bowl will air at 8:45 p.m. EST on Jan. 1 on ESPN.  No. 5 Georgia will take on No. 7 Baylor in that game.
