There are 44 college bowl games/playoff games this year. The first two are today, and the last one, the national championship game, is on January 10. In all, 86 schools will be playing games this post-season.
Streamers used to have a difficult time watching the games live -- at least legally -- but that changed in the 2015 season when the first live streaming service, Sling TV, launched. Now, there are several live streaming services, and you have lots of options when it comes to watching bowl games.
