The schedule will kick off on Sept. 16 with the Fiesta Bowl, which takes place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The first game in the Fiesta bowl schedule is the first ever to feature the two schools competing for the title.
The other games will feature one of the top-ranked teams in the country, and will be televised on ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNU.

The other bowls that will have two teams in it this year are the Sugar Bowl (Sept. 22), the Rose Bowl (Oct. 10), and the Sugar Sixteen (Oct 10).
The Rose Bowl is one of three bowls in which the ACC will be played, along with the Sugar and Cotton.
