Football Season and More info:
The football season in the United States usually begins the first week in September, running until December. The competitive structure, as every other sport, is broken down into a conference where teams from the same region play against one another. After, conference champions and the "best of the rest" compete in a playoff structure. Most famously known at the the D-I level, after the regular season ends, "Bowl Season" commences, where teams are paired up against one another in various title games. The last game of the bowl season is the College Football Playoff Championship.
