Saturday, Dec. 12 will be a rough day for football fans as college bowl games will not have started up yet and - for whatever reason - the NFL did not schedule games on this particular Saturday. 

The only game on the slate will be the annual Army-Navy clash, which kicks off at 3 p.m. on CBS.

In 2013, there were zero Saturday games played in the NFL for the first time since the 1970 merger.
