The Cincinnati Bearcats and Georgia Bulldogs will face off in the 2021 Peach Bowl. The game will take place at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. Kickoff is currently scheduled for 12:30 p.m. ET on January 1. The game will air on ESPN and will be available via live stream at WatchESPN.

Cincinnati are the 10-0 American Conference Champions, behind their 27-24 win over the Tulsa Golden Hurricane in the title game on December 19th. Desmond Ridder is one of the best quarterbacks in his conference, adding 2,445 yards and 20 touchdowns to a team that has relied on an elite defense all season.

Georgia has looked like a different team since JT Daniels took over at quarterback. The transfer from USC has 839 yards nine touchdowns with just one interception in three games since getting under center earlier this year.

The game will take place in one of the best venues in college football, but also Atlanta has often been the city that drowns favorites. The Dawgs will be favored at home, but can they escape back to Athens with a major bowl victory?
