The 2020 college football regular season pushes on toward the postseason, but it won't be a normal one.

The College Football Playoff is still on schedule to be played, with teams like Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson and Notre Dame seen as the favorites for the national title.

However, several notable bowl games have already been canceled, including the second-longest running bowl game in history. The Sun Bowl was reportedly canceled on Tuesday.

Unfortunately, the Sun Bowl is far from the only notable bowl game to be canceled.

College football insider Brett McMurphy reported on Wednesday night that the Las Vegas Bowl has been canceled. This is the ninth college football bowl game to be canceled, according to McMurphy.

The Las Vegas Bowl made the decision to cancel its postseason game due to the ongoing pandemic. COVID-19 cases are spiking across the country as we head into the holiday season.

It's tough to see bowl games like this get canceled, because it means less teams will be able to play in the postseason and experience the reward of a bowl trip.

Unfortunately, this is what happens when you try to have a season during a pandemic. The season will hopefully finish, but not as planned.
