As of now, there are two FBS college football games scheduled for the weekend of Saturday, November 28th that have been rescheduled, canceled or postponed.

As games are added, including some that will have an impact on the College Football Playoff race, we’ll add them to the spreadsheet below.

Some of these are tilts won’t have much of an impact on championships or even bowl eligibility. Remember: bowl games in 2020 are free to take any team they wish regardless of record.

Most teams will fall far short of a dozen games in 2020. And as teams run out of weeks to play games and more cancelations than ever, the reality is a shortened and improvised schedule will hit every conference in America.

Here is how we define each game in our list below:

Rescheduled: A new date and time has been announced.

Postponed: The game will not be played, and a new date and time has not been announced. We also add “unlikely” for games that don’t appear to have room to be played on current schedules, but where an official announcement hasn’t been made that the game won’t occur.

Canceled: The game will not be played at any point this season.
