Re: No fall sports championships, including FCS football, in 2020
The bowls have zero to do with any championships in CFB. They're wholly owned by each hosting entity (and are in nearly every case financially backed 100% by ESPN, but that's another discussion) and have nothing to do with any championships. That's why the playoff champion is called the "College Football Playoffs National Champion" or previously the "BCS National Champion." The only national championships the NCAA recognize are in FCS (formerly D-1AA) and D2 and D3.
Also - there will still be a Rose Bowl this year. It's the only mostly-independent Bowl game. It'll happen, unless all of FBS football is delayed until the spring - in which case, it'll happen in April or May.
