Bowl eligibility in college football at the NCAA Division I FBS level is the standard through which teams become available for selection to participate in postseason bowl games . When a team achieves this state, it is described as " bowl -eligible".

The teams that participate in the National Collegiate Athletic Association 's Division I Football Bowl Subdivision earn the right to compete in a series of post-season games called bowl games .

The NCAA Division I Council waived all win requirements for bowl eligibility on Wednesday as expected, leaving teams free to play in a bowl game regardless of their record. The decision accepts the recommendation of the Division I Football Oversight Committee.

Given the disparate and reduced number of games being played by the various Division I conferences, it was highly unlikely that enough teams would reach the usual six-win plateau to fill the 78 available bowl slots this year.

Since 2015, five teams have played in the postseason despite having fewer than six wins: Nebraska, Minnesota and San Jose State in 2015, and Mississippi State and North Texas in 2016. All five teams went 5-7 during the regular season.

The Big Ten and Pac-12 have yet to begin their seasons. The Big Ten will open a potential nine-game schedule on Nov. 24 and the Pac-12 a seven-game slate on Nov. 7.

There are 39 bowl games currently scheduled to be played in December and January, including the College Football Playoff semifinals and national championship game. Three games, the Hawaii, Redbox and Bahamas bowls, have already been canceled.
