The best college football bowl games are usually reserved for New Year's Day. But the CHICK-FIL-A BOWL – formerly the Peach Bowl – serves as an annual appetizer for the full run of pigskin glory the next day. This season's contest features No. 11 Virginia Tech against Tennessee in what we'd like to call the What The Hell Is Your Mascot? Bowl (Hokies? Volunteers?). It's a dynamic matchup of Southeastern Conference supremacy against Frank Beamer's national powerhouse. All-American Vol safety and Georgia native Eric Berry will lead the Tennessee defense against quarterback Tyrod Taylor and the equally impressive Hokie offense. $60-$100. 7:30 p.m. Georgia Dome, 1 Georgia Dome Drive. 404-223-9200. www.chick-fil-abowl.com.
