Update 12:30 p.m.: The Buffalo vs. Ohio game is canceled, hurting the chances of Bulls star running back Jaret Patterson from even breaking more records this weekend. With the cancelation UB has clinched the East Division, and will likely face Western Michigan in the MAC title game.

Update Dec 4 12:15 p.m.: Vanderbilt vs. #11 Georgia has also been scrubbed. The makeup date has been established for Dec. 19th since both teams won’t play in the SEC Championship Game.

Update Dec 2 11:00 p.m.: The Boise State-UNLV game scheduled for December 4th in Allegiant Stadium has also been canceled.

Update Dec 2 3:10 p.m.: The SMU vs. Houston game is also off, which is the eighth game this season the Houston Cougars have had canceled in 2020.

Update Dec 2 3:03 p.m.: Maryland vs. Michigan has been canceled, and the Miami (OH) Redhawks vs. the Kent State Golden Flashes is off as well.

Update Nov. 30 12:40 p.m.: Two more games are off the board as Northwestern are the Big Ten West Champions by default as they won’t play Minnesota this weekend, and the Western Kentucky vs. Charlotte game scheduled for Tuesday night is also off.


As of now, there are two FBS college football games scheduled for the weekend of Saturday, December 5th 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.
