Peach Bowl: What Time, TV Channel & Preview

When the New Year’s Six bowl games were announced, there was some question about how competitive the Peach Bowl would really be as the 12-1 Houston Cougars face the 10-2 Florida State Seminoles at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. This is a game that actually features two teams that are very similar and it could make for a much better game than many are expecting as the appetizer before the playoff semifinals later in the day on New Year’s Eve.
Houston won the American Athletic Conference title with a 24-13 win over Temple and their only loss came on November 21 to Connecticut. Greg Ward Jr. has been a dual threat worthy of any power conference quarterback position. Ward has thrown for 2,590 yards, 16 touchdowns and five interceptions in the pass game while rushing for another 1,041 yards and 19 touchdowns. Demarcus Ayers has been a monster catching the ball from Ward with 89 receptions for 1,140 yards and six touchdowns. The Cougars aren’t a team to just look past as they average 40.6 points a game.

Florida State finished their regular season on a three-game winning streak including a 27-2 win over Florida on the road. This has turned into Sean Maguire’s team in recent games and Maguire has thrown for 1,128 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions for the year. Dalvin Cook is a beast rushing the ball with 1,658 yards and 18 touchdowns on the ground for the Seminoles. Florida State features three receivers with between 50 and 53 catches led by Kermit Whitfield’s 53 catches for 742 yards and six touchdowns. If the Seminoles come to play for the early start, it could run away with this game.
