.The number 9th ranked Florida State Seminoles and the number 14th ranked Houston Cougars travel to the Georgia Dome in Atlanta Georgia to face off in the delicious chicken sandwich, um I mean the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. Florida State, who in recent years has competed for the national championship is this year religated to one of the non-playoff bowls (this made Tona a very sad boy). Noles head coach Jimbo Fishers says that he considers the Peach Bowl a good consolation which is coach speak for "Yeah, I guess I'll take what we get!". The Seminoles ended the year in second place in the ACC's Atlantic Division.

On the other side of the ball it's actually a big accomplishment for the Houston Cougars to make it to one of the New Year's Eve "major bowls". They earned a birth by way of being the top ranked team amongst a group of five lower level conferences. The Houston Cougars won the American Athletic Conference by beating the 20th ranked (at the time of the game) Temple Owls 24 to 13. Their championship game took place back on December 5th.
