Chick-fil-A Bowl History

. Score some tickets to see the best go head to head in Atlanta, in what is sure to be another nail biting experience
The matchups are always highly competitive, as 56% of the games in Chi-fil-A history have been determined by a single touchdown or less. Last year’s December 31 game was a thriller: the Clemson Tigers stole the victory from favored LSU Tigers in the last quarter for a final score of 25-24. Talented Clemson quarterback Tahj Boyd, who secured the victory with a minute left, was named the MVP of the game, with 346 passing yards and no interceptions. Early projections had these two teams lined up for a re-match this year, while other predictions propose the Florida State Seminoles opposite the Georgia Bulldogs.
Though it doesn’t sound like it, the Chick-fil-A Bowl has a long history; it was originally called the Peach Bowl (after Georgia’s state fruit) in 1968 and is the 9th oldest bowl game in the nation. Now, the bowl has been selected, among six others, to participate in the College Football Playoffs, starting in 2014, as a (rotating) host of a semifinalist team. Concurrent with this elevation, the bowl will be called the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, as a homage to its roots. If that’s not enough, the Chic-fil-A Bowl has maintained its integrity by granting more charitable and scholarship contributions to athletes and schools than any other bowl game in the nation.
