While the two College Football Playoff semifinals are over, there is still a ton of great college football to be played before bowl season ends. The next 48 hours are going to be awesome.

Tuesday, New Year's Day, there are five games on the slate. Let's take a look at the game time, channel and announcers for each of the games.

Up first, No. 18 Mississippi State will take on Iowa in an Outback Bowl matchup of 8-4 teams. The Bulldogs and Hawkeyes will kick off at Noon on ESPN. The announcers on the call will be Mark Jones, Dusty Dvoracek and Molly McGrath.

There are two games that kick off an hour later. The first is No. 11 LSU vs. No. 8 UCF in the Fiesta Bowl. That game will be broadcast on ESPN and will feature Steve Levy, Brian Griese and Todd McShay.

The other is No. 12 Penn State vs. No. 14 Kentucky in the Citrus Bowl. That contest will be broadcast on ABC with Dave Flemming, Brock Huard and Laura Rutledge on the call.
