Game Date/Time: Saturday, Dec. 31 at 8 p.m. ET
Location: Atlanta, Ga.
Online: Sling TV
Radio: 97.1 FM/1460 AM
After fives weeks of hearing that they were outplayed, outclassed, and outcoached the last time they were on the field, the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes will have an opportunity to prove their doubters wrong tonight in the Peach Bowl at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Ga. To do that, they will need to play an incredible game against the top-ranked and defending national champion Georgia Bulldogs.
No matter who has the ball, tonight’s matchup will be a battle of strengths-on-strengths with Ohio State’s No. 2 ranked scoring offense facing off against Georgia’s No. 2 scoring defense. Then when UGA has the ball, the Bulldogs have the 10th-rated scoring offense vs. OSU’s 13th-ranked scoring defense.
Though stud offensive weapons Jaxon Smith-Njigba and TreVeyon Henderson won’t be in uniform for Ohio State, the rest of the Buckeye roster is relatively healthy. Running back Miyan Williams missed a pair of early-week practices this week due to illness, but was back on Thursday and has nearly fully recovered from the lower-leg injury that hampered him throughout the season.
On Jan. 9, 2023, the winner of the Peach Bowl will take on the winner of the Fiesta Bowl matchup between No. 2 Michigan and No. 3 TCU.
