Chick-fil-A Bowl Previews
2013 Chick-fil-A Bowl Preview
The Chick-fil-A Bowl will be played on Wednesday, December 31st at 8:00 PM EST between the Duke Blue Devils and the Texas A&M Aggies. Texas A&M is in one of the top SEC bowl games, but they might be surprised at its opponent is – the Duke Blue Devils. While Johnny Manziel won’t be winning another Heisman this year, he’s still one of the most dangerous players in the game and he’ll give the Blue Devils fits in the backfield. Duke knows all about top-tier quarterbacks, as they faced Heisman front-runner Jameis Winston in the ACC championship game.
Texas A&M finished 8-4 this season, 4-4 in the SEC after winning 11 games last season, due in most part to a shaky defense. This could also be Manziel’s final game in an Aggie uniform, as the redshirt sophomore is eligible for the NFL draft after this season. He has yet to make a decision on his future. See a high-flying game in the Georgia Dome on New Year’s Eve as Texas A&M takes on Duke in the Chick-fil-A Bowl!
2012 Chick-fil-a Bowl Game Preview:
The aspirations are always high for LSU and Clemson, and both team's fans will expect their team to win the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on New Year's Eve. Both teams are sitting at 10-2 and want nothing more than to notch win #11 in Atlanta. Clemson's Tajh Boyd has 43 touchdowns on the season as well as Andre Ellington behind him, who has run for over 1,000 yards. They'll need to break through a LSU defense that has only allowed 16.9 points per game and is filled with NFL-level talent.
The Georgia Dome is home to some great college football every season, and with these two rabid fan bases it will definitely be beneficial to get your tickets as soon as you can!
2011 Chick-fil-a Bowl Game Preview:
The Chick-Fil-A Bowl will be the last football game played in 2011; it kicks off at 7:30pm EST on New Year’s Eve. Although it may be the last, it is certainly not the least; as this year’s bowl matches the Auburn Tigers against the Virginia Cavaliers. The Tigers are the defensive national champions in college football and had big wins this year over Florida and South Carolina. Virginia is playing in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl for the first time since 1998 and will be looking to bring home their 9th win of the season.
2010 Chick-fil-A Bowl Game Preview:
The 2010 Chick-fil-A Bowl will be the last college football game play this season as it kicks off at 7:30pm on New Year’s Eve at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. The Chick-fil-A Bowl features two of the best 9-4 teams in college football; the South Carolina Gamecocks from the SEC and the Florida State Seminoles from the ACC.
The Gamecocks are led by Head Coach Steve Spurrier, who fields a talented offensive unit and stingy defense. The Old Ball Coach took South Carolina to their first SEC Championship Game in 2010, where they lost an exciting game to the undefeated Auburn Tigers. Across the field from Spurrier will be the Seminoles 1st-year coach, Jimbo Fisher. Fisher took over this season for Bobby Bowden and led FSU to their best record in a decade. Florida State’s offense led the team this year by averaging almost 32 points per game.
South Carolina has not played in the Chick-fil-A Bowl since 1969 and this is Florida State’s first appearance since 1983. But the Gamecocks just played at the Georgia Dome for the SEC Championship which might give them a slight advantage and will at least make sure they know where their locker room is located. The 2010 Chick-fil-A Bowl should be a high scoring game and an exciting game to close out the year.
2009 Chick-fil-A Bowl Game Preview:
The 2009 Chick-fil-A Bowl matches up two powerful teams from power conferences. The Tennessee Volunteers will represent the SEC and the Virginia Tech Hokies are coming from the ACC conference. Tennessee head coach Lane Kiffin will be looking for a bowl win to cap his first season leading the Vols. VaTech head man Frank Beamer wants a win to finish strong on what has been an up-and-down season in Blacksburg. This Chick-fil-A Bowl should be a special one; it'll have the stadium rocking at the Georgia Dome.
