The Peach Bowl was first recognized officially as part of the NCAA post-season in 1968. Since 1996, it has carried the name Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, and as the event has grown, so have its scholarship and charitable contributions, now totally in the millions of dollars. It is held at the Georgia Dome, which is the home of the National Football League's Atlanta Falcons. As high as a 27-story building with a roof made of fiberglass panels coated in Teflon, the Georgia Dome is holds over 71,500 sports fans, and attendance at the Peach Bowl has maxed out in recent years. Getting Peach Bowl tickets is a goal of football fans from all over the Southeast and beyond, who perennially make it the most highly attended bowl game outside the Bowl Championship Series.
The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl is always a competition between two conferences, the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Southeastern Conference. Traditionally match ups between the ACC and SEC are high scoring and close games. The game is held around the 30th of December to the second of January. It is possibly the only time teams from these two rival conferences will play each other, so you'll want to get your Peach Bowl tickets soon before they are gone.
The Peach Bowl was held for the first time on December 30th, 1968. The game was between LSU and Florida State with LSU winning 31-27. The history of the Peach Bowl shows that it is one of the most intense and important bowl games of all. Team scores are on average as close as seven points between winning and losing, while it is rare for any bowl game to be decided by a margin of less than ten points. Many of football's renowned coaches and star players have participated here--Harris Barton, Dick Bestwick, Randy White, and Jerry Claiborne are all in the Peach Bowl Hall of Fame.
