CFB playoff start times changed for 2016

The College Football playoff games will start earlier in 2016 after losing a lot of money this past season due to a hit in TV ratings.

From CFB Talk:

The CFP announced Monday morning that the start times for the two semifinal games following the 2016 season, the Fiesta Bowl and Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, will be 3 p.m. ET and 7 p.m. ET on the last day of 2016 — which games will start when will be determined when the four semifinalists are selected. Last year’s semifinals, the Orange Bowl and Cotton Bowl, had 4 p.m. ET and 8 p.m. ET start times.

The biggest mistake they made this past season was putting playoff games on New Year’s eve when most of America had to work.
