ARLINGTON, Texas — College football’s bowl schedule has been released for the 2011-12 season, featuring 35 games over 23 days and ending with the BCS National Championship Game on Jan. 9 in New Orleans.

The Football Bowl Association says the bowl season will open Dec. 17 with three games — the New Mexico Bowl, the Humanitarian Bowl and the New Orleans Bowl.

The traditional bowl date of Jan. 1 will have no games since it falls on a Sunday, when the NFL plays a full schedule of games to close its regular season.

The Rose Bowl is Jan. 2, the Sugar is Jan. 3, the Orange is Jan. 4 and the Fiesta is Jan. 5.
