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

This marks the third time the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl has been played on New Year's Day and the first time the game has ever been played in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

"I just got a call late night, UCF sold out their total allotment of 12,500 in their first day of sales, so UCF is fired up", Peach Bowl CEO and president Gary Stokan said.

A win by the Tigers in the bowl game will give the program its sixth 11-win season in school history in what will be its first trip to the Peach Bowl since 2011, when Auburn defeated Virginia 43-24 on December 31 in the Georgia Dome.

UCF (12-0, 8-0) enters the game as champions of the American Athletic Conference.

Consider the scenario. Even after losing the Georgia rematch, the Tigers would've been 11-2 overall with a flawless 8-0 SEC record in the regular season.

IATA says Middle East airline net profit will double in 2018
That's ahead of 7.7 percent in Brazil, 6.1 percent in Russian Federation and 5.3 percent in the USA. Capacity rose 3.4%, and load factor jumped 2.7 percentage points to 70.9%.


Win that game, and there's a good chance Auburn would've made the playoff despite losing the SEC Championship Game - while Alabama and Ohio State both would've been on the outside looking in.

Their two defeats would've been an eight-point road loss at No. 1 playoff seed Clemson without Kerryon Johnson and a 21-point non-neutral site loss to Georgia with their MVP and two defensive starters severely wounded.

Malzahn echoed those sentiments during his postgame media session, saying that he believes the team will repeat as SEC West Division champion and return to the conference title game one year from now, adding: "I'm happy at Auburn. They have a very dynamic offense and are the only undefeated team in FBS, so it will be great challenge for our program", said Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn.

Auburn is led by sophomore quarterback Jarrett Stidham, who ranks second in the nation in career passing efficiency and is second in the SEC in passing yards.

They're also on track to bring in to bring in the sixth top-10 recruiting class of Malzahn's tenure.
