Peach Bowl Game History

What is the Peach Bowl Game ?

The Peach Bowl also known as the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl for sponsorship reasons is an annual college football game contested by selected top ranked NCAA teams. The first Peach Bowl game took place at Grant Field, Atlanta, Georgia in 1968 and was won by Louisiana State University (LSU) who defeated Florida State 31-27 watched by an attendance of 35,545 fans.

The Peach Bowl has undergone a few changes in it's history although the game has always taken place in Atlanta. There have been four Peach Bowl venues, the current one since 2017 being the Mercedes-Benz Stadium which is the home of the NFL's Atlanta Falcons team.

The selection process for the Peach Bowl contestants has seen a few tweaks down the years but largely features top ranked NCAA teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), Southeastern Conference (SEC), the Big Ten, Big 12, The American (AAC) and Pac-12.

In 2014 it was announced the Peach Bowl game would join other bowl games in hosting the College Football Playoff (CFP) Semi Final games which originate from the Football Bowl Subdivision of the NCAA Division 1, these bowl games are also referred to as the 'New Year's Six' (NY6). The winners of the CFP Semi Finals then play in the College Football National Championship Game. The Peach Bowl's first CFP Semi Final was in 2016 which saw Alabama defeat Washington 24-7.
