Chick-Fil-A bowl to add 'Peach' to its name

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA - A big day for college football fans in Atlanta as the Chick-Fil-A bowl will be renamed. Chick-Fil-A made the official announcement Monday that the New Year’s Eve bowl game will be renamed the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl.

“I think it means a lot to all the people that have worked so many years to make this bowl successful, in tough times when they were outside in cold and freezing weather,” says Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl President Gary Stoikan. “I think it's the heritage that the board decided to pay homage to that made the difference in why we went back to peach.”

The bowl game is already a part of the new college football playoff system. The Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl is set to host its first college football semifinal game after the 2016 season.
