The 2023 College Football Bowl Season is here, with a total of 82 playing in 41 games, and the top two semifinalists advancing to the College Football Playoff National Championship on January 8.

Of the 133 teams in FBS college football this season, 81 teams that finished at 6-6 or better during the regular campaign. Minnesota was the 5-7 team with the best APR score, and they will reach a bowl game as well.

Both Army and Navy sit at 5-6, with one game to play against each other on December 9. But the winning team will not accept a bowl invite, and so we know all the teams that will play in postseason. That includes both James Madison and Jacksonville State, two programs both in transition from the FCS level that would normally have been ineligible for postseason, but can participate this year due to the lack of eligible FBS teams.

All teams below are added as they are released by official outlets on Twitter, or from reporters such as Action Network’s Brett McMurphy or those affiliated with ESPN (who owns nearly half of all bowl games).
