Exclamation 2022 NFL Schedule - Effect On 2022-23 Bowl Games?
The biggest things:

There will be a full slate of NFL Games on Sun. Jan. 1, including a Sunday Night game in Los Angeles between the Super Bowl Champion Rams and the "Chargers" (who should be in San Diego IMO). This is normal operating procedure. The difference is that in old years this would be the final week of the regular season and now it is the second to last week.

There is a Monday Night Football game on Mon. Jan. 2, Buffalo at Cincinnati.

The Sugar Bowl will be played Sat. Dec. 31, 2022 at 11am CT on ESPN.

There are no NFL games scheduled for either Fri. Dec. 30 or Sat. Dec. 31. There is an NFL game scheduled for Thur. Dec. 29, Dallas at Tennessee. This could affect the date/time of the Music City Bowl. The last two years it was played Dec. 30 mid afternoon. That day/time could be in jeopardy as they'd have less than 24 hours to turn it around after the Titans play.

The previous week there are a full slate of games on Sat. Dec. 24 and three games scheduled on Sun. Dec. 25 including one hosted by the Rams in the Los Angeles area. There is a Monday Night game on Mon. Dec. 26 but it is in Indianapolis. That game is hosted by ESPN so it is likely that no bowl game plays in prime time that night unless they air on another network (ABC, ESPN2, FOX) and then they are competing vs. the NFL.

Week 18 has two games played on Sat. Jan. 7 and the rest of the games on Sun. Jan. 8 so I'm guessing no college bowls either day. The national championship is Mon. Jan. 9 in So Fi Stadium in Inglewood, CA, the first time the national championship will be crowned in Southern California in College Football Playoff history and the second time it was played in California (2019 in Levi Stadium in Santa Clara).

I don't expect any affect from the NFL but it's right to assume that attendance and viewership will be down again.

CFP semifinals will be in on 12/31.

Rose Bowl will be played on 1/2, which has been traditionally been the case whenever 1/1 falls on a Sunday. (Historically, it was to avoid conflicts with religious services as opposed to the NFL.)

Otherwise, everyone needs to fit around the NFL schedule. Note that the NFL will likely be adding a Black Friday game next year and they’re expanding their Christmas Day slate. Essentially, they’re a buzzsaw. They no longer care whether Sunday Night Football goes up against the World Series (because SNF wins in the ratings). They’re now going after the traditional time slots of the NBA and college football. The networks are paying so much money for the NFL that they’ll take any time slot that the NFL is willing to go to.
