Georgia, Ohio fans show out in Atlanta ahead of Peach Bowl
ATLANTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Georgia Bulldogs take on Ohio State in the Atlanta Peach Bowl on New Year’s Eve.
The Peach Bowl will decide who heads to the national championship game in California.
We’re in Atlanta, where the pre-party to the main event between the Dawgs and the Buckeyes kicked off.
Georgia fans started the year winning the first national title in 40 years and hope to end the year by earning a trip back to the national championship game.
The only thing standing in the way is number four, Ohio State.
Friday night, there was no shortage of confidence from both sides at the Georgia Aquarium for Peach Bowl Fan Night.
Four weeks ago, the Bulldogs did what they didn’t do in 2021, and on the eve of the Peach Bowl, the fans and the team smell blood in the water.
The band played one more anthem before the real deal.
“We have one of the top-rated corners in the nation, Ringo,” said one Ohio fan. “They are the Dawgs, but we have the Dawg in us.”
‘It’s hard. It’s hard. Tomorrow I might not want to talk to him,” another Ohio fan added.
A Georiga fan added, “It’s like passing on a tradition to come down here, my mom, she’s out in Stone Mountain, so it’s always nice to say hey, ‘we’re Bulldog fans.’”
Some fans still debating...
Even when the going gets tough...
A Georgia fan added: “I’ll be honest, that was kind of a rough kick, but it was fun, so that’s all that matters.”
