Question about the 2020 schedule
This year we have 2 bye weeks but next years schedule only shows one. Is there a reason for this? Sorry if it’s been answered before.

This year there are 14 weekends from Labor Day to Thanksgiving. Next year there are 13 weekends. It happens every few years where there are two byes.

re: Question about the 2020 schedule
The 2019 calendar allows for 14 regular-season weeks before conference championship Saturday instead of the usual 13, and although that doesn’t mean extra football, it does mean extra time for the same amount of football, which everyone benefts from in the form of a second bye week. The last time college football faced a double-bye year was in 2014. It happened in 2013, too, and before that, 2008.

Here’s why it happens: In the majority of years, there are 13 Saturdays from the Saturday two days before Labor Day until the Saturday after Thanksgiving. But this year, Labor Day falls just one day past its earliest possible date, and Thanksgiving falls on its latest possible date. That means one more week of football, for 14 total, for each team to play the same amount of regular-season games (12) as usual. This has been your lesson in the Gregorian calendar.
