Nearly 80,000 fans packed Mercedes-Benz Stadium for the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl. Fans from all over came to Atlanta to cheer on their team and hopefully ring in the new year with a win.
Even though they are on different teams, they have one goal and that is to encourage their teams to win.
“Oh, I’m excited. It’s good to be back in the playoffs,” Ohio State University fan Eva Soucek said.
“We did it last year, but it’s always hard to come back and we don’t take it for granted, but we’re coming back,” University of Georgia fan Corey Rice said.
And Rice told Channel 2’s Larry Spruill that he had to see his team compete for the ring again.

Even though Peach Bowl tickets sold out months ago, those thousands upon thousands of fans were willing to pay the price to be in the building.
“We don’t take anybody for granted. We know Ohio State is a good team and they deserve to be here, but Georgia fans, we’re looking for nothing less than a win,” Rice said.

“I know we all want to win, after the last loss,” Soucek said.
You could feel the atmosphere outside the stadium in the backyard of Home Depot in downtown Atlanta on Saturday night. The energy was electrifying from the bands until the two football teams made their entrance.
