Monday Night Football Tonight: No NFL Games Until Playoffs

Football TV Schedule

Getty Bryce Perkins and Virginia squares off with Florida in the Orange Bowl.

There is no NFL Monday Night Football game on TV tonight as fans will have to wait until Saturday, January 4th when the playoffs begin. The good news is there is plenty of college football bowl games today that can serve as a bit of a replacement until the postseason.

There are four college football games on television today including the Orange Bowl featuring Florida taking on Virginia. The Cavaliers have one of the most exciting quarterbacks in the country in Bryce Perkins. Virginia receiver Joe Reed discussed how Perkins has impacted the program during his time behind center.

”Bryce has been a program-changer,” Reed told NBC 12. “Some guys are game-changers, but he has changed a program. He’s a great leader, he’s very poised in the huddle, he’s an even better friend.”

Louisville takes on Mississippi State in the Music City Bowl at 4 p.m. Eastern on ESPN. Cal squares off with Illinois in the Red Box Bowl at 4 p.m. on Fox. Western Kentucky and Western Michigan begin the day in the SERVPRO Bowl at 12:30 p.m. on ESPN.
