The College Football Playoff (CFP) continues with its second semifinal matchup between the No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs and the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes. This semifinal will be played at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, which is a member of the New Year’s Six. Georgia and Ohio State are looking to win their second National Championship in the CFP era.
Since 2021, Georgia is 27-1, with a National Championship one season ago. The Bulldogs will look to become the first team to repeat as national champions since Alabama in 2011 and 2012. Across the sideline stands Ohio State, who won the inaugural College Football Playoff in 2014.
The 2022 Peach Bowl between Georgia and Ohio State will start at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday, December 31. The game will be played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The announcers will be Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, Holly Rowe, and Laura Rutledge. According to Fanduel, Georgia is favored by 6.5 points.

The Georgia Bulldogs enter Atlanta as the number-one-ranked team in the country with a perfect 13-0 record. In their last game, Georgia flexed their dominance as they destroyed LSU, 50-30, in the SEC Championship Game. For Georgia to win its second-straight championship, it will need to go through the second-best team in the Big Ten, and then the best team in the Big Ten or Big 12.
After getting embarrassed by Michigan in the final game of the regular season, Ohio State, 11-1, snuck into the College Football Playoff after USC’s loss in the Pac-12 Championship. However, Ryan Day’s Buckeyes find themselves back in the CFP for the third time in four years. For Ohio State to keep it close, quarterback C.J. Stroud will need his Superman cape and throw for at least 300 yards and multiple touchdowns to keep pace with Georgia.
