The name Peach Bowl returns next year as part of the Playoff agreement. Tostitos, All-State, Chic-fil-A, etc. will still be the sponors but the 6 major bowls are Rose, Orange, Sugar, Fiesta, Cotton, & Peach.

The "Peach Bowl" or Chik Fila Bowl, depending on sponsor, is one of the major bowl games and now will serve as a semi-final game in the new play off format. Its a good bowl game if you are not an SEC team and Atlanta is 100 miles down the road...

The contract did not even consider the new playoff format. It looks like they just copy and pasted Mack Brown's incentive contract without thinking about the new format.

it still exists in our hearts man. Chic-fil-A took over the name in the late 90s.

How can one appear in the "Peach Bowl" when the "Peach Bowl" no longer exists?
