We’re about to enter a tricky part of the year if you’re a football fan as you can’t bank on a full slate of college games each and every Saturday anymore (sad face).

The only game on the docket this Saturday, Dec. 10 is Army vs. Navy (3 p.m., CBS), but college football bowl games will crank up a week later on Saturday, Dec. 17. Click here for a complete 2016-17 bowl schedule.

Like it has in the past, the NFL will also broadcast some Saturday December games. There is one game on Saturday, Dec. 17 and 12 games on Saturday, Dec. 24 as the NFL wanted to avoid having too many games on Christmas Day. A look at the Saturday NFL schedule.
