ATLANTA - The Auburn Tigers are making a return trip to Atlanta to play in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. They will face the undefeated Knights of Central Florida.
That’s right, there is still an undefeated team in the college football world. In fact, there was some noise from certain corners that they should have been included in the College Football Playoffs.
The Knights left Orlando for Atlanta Tuesday.
They are champions of the American Athletic Conference.
And Peach Bowl bound with the chance to make some more noise.
“This team is different. You know, we came a long way. We did a lot for each other and we're going to continue to do so. And when it comes to this game and being considered underdogs in this game, being told what we cannot do, we're going to come in and show everybody what UCF is all about," said UCF cornerback Shaquem Griffin. “You know, we laugh a lot. we fun, we're enjoying it, and we're just ready to get up to this Peach Bowl.”
The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl celebrated 50 years of football in Atlanta this week as UCF and Auburn prepare for Monday's game.
The Peach Bowl takes place Monday at 12:30 p.m. at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
