College Football Playoff Selection show:

DATE: Sunday, Dec. 4

TIME: 9 a.m. PT



ESPN kicks off their coverage at 5am pst and goes all the way to 8pm the full schedule is below (all times pst):

5 a.m.-9am College Football Sunday ESPNU
9 a.m.- 1 p.m. College Football Playoff: Top 25 Selection Show - ESPN
1 p.m. - 3 p.m Championship Drive: Bowl Selection Show - ESPNU
3 p.m. -5:30 p.m. Championship Drive: Who’s In Presented by Chick-fil-A - ESPN2
5:30 p.m - 8 p.m. Championship Drive: Who’s In Presented by Capital One - ESPN

The top 4 teams will be announced at approximately 9:30am and the rest of the teams playing in the New Year’s Six bowls will be announced at 11:30am. Since Stanford is not in realistic contention for any of the NY6 Bowls we will have to wait until at least 1pm when the Bowl Selection show begins on ESPNU.

Most projections have Stanford going to the Sun Bowl to play the Pittsburgh Panthers on Saturday December 30th in El Paso, Texas. Other strong possibilities are the Holiday Bowl or a return to the Foster Farms Bowl.
