Tigers to face UCF in Peach Bowl

Tigers to face UCF in Peach Bowl

Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. ET and will be aired on ESPN.

There's reason to believe Auburn can make it back there again, and not only because it will play its next two games at Mercedes-Benz Stadium - the January 1 Peach Bowl against UCF and the 2018 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game against Washington. Auburn now holds a 4-1 record in the game, with its last appearance resulting in a 43-24 victory over Virginia in 2011.

Lorenzen added that all firefighters can do at this stage is try and get ahead of the fire and protect structures. About 2,500 homes were ordered evacuated.


The Tigers lost to Georgia in the Southeastern Conference championship game Saturday night and enter the Peach Bowl with a 9-3 record.

But the SEC Championship Game may not have mattered much at all in the playoff picture if Auburn hadn't melted down and blown a 20-0 lead at LSU in October. The Knights are the only undefeated FBS team in the nation, recording the program's first-ever flawless regular season.

UCF will come into the contest with the nation's highest scoring offense at 49.4 points per game and the seventh best passing offense in the country behind sophomore McKenzie Milton, who has 15 touchdowns and four interceptions in the last four games. In Sunday's final rankings, even after Georgia 28, Auburn 7, the committee put the 10-3 Tigers at No. 7, making them the highest-ranked three-loss team. "To have college football's only undefeated team square off against the first-ever team to defeat two College Football Playoff No. 1 ranked teams in a season makes for an extremely compelling game". Off the bat, that would give Auburn the conference's second-leading passer and top rusher.

First and foremost, quarterback Jarrett Stidham (named the SEC's co-Newcomer of the Year by the Associated Press on Monday) and running back Kerryon Johnson (named the SEC Offensive Player of the Year) have both made it sound like they intend to return to the Plains for another season.

"We're very excited about playing in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl against a very good Central Florida team".
