2017 Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield leads the No. 2 Oklahoma Sooners against the No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs in the Rose Bowl College Football Playoff Semifinal Jan. 1, 2018

There are once again a whole lot of college football bowl games, but only a handful that really matter.

Attendance might be dwindling at some of the lesser bowl games, but they're still big business for the bowls' TV partners, particularly ESPN, whose ESPN Events division has ownership of many of them.

The parade of postseason games begins Dec. 16 and continues steadily through New Year's Day. The top four teams in college football compete in the College Football Playoff Semifinals, with both games taking place Jan. 1 on ESPN. First up, the No. 2 Oklahoma Sooners face the No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. Then in the Allstate Sugar Bowl at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, the No. 1 Clemson Tigers face the No. 4 Alabama Crimson Tide in a rematch of last year’s national championship game won by Clemson. The national championship game is Jan. 8 on ESPN.
