Peach Bowl 2019: Your guide to eating in and around Mercedes-Benz Stadium

Things to Know About the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl It's been played in Atlanta since December 1968. Since 2014, the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl has been one of six bowl games to host the College Football Playoff. The other bowls are the Cotton, Fiesta, Orange, Rose and Sugar Bowls. In 1996, Chick-fil-A became the bowl’s first and only title partner. The last time a Georgia team played in the bowl was in 2008 when LSU beat Georgia Tech.
