The Peach Bowl is back again today with an interesting matchup between Penn State, which will make its debut appearance in a Peach Bowl, and Ole Miss, a team that has made three Peach Bowl appearances.
While Penn State and Ole Miss aren’t the best teams in the country, they’re certainly quite good, with Penn State ranked 10th in the nation, followed closely by Ole Miss at 11. With the teams so closely matched on paper, the game promises to be one of the more competitive showdowns when it kicks off today.
Penn State comes into the game with a 10-2 record under head coach James Franklin. Penn State’s defense was outstanding this year, leading the nation in total defense. The Nittany Lions ranked second in total sacks, second in rushing defense, and third in scoring defense. On the other side of the ball, Penn State had a solid, but not necessarily outstanding season. It’ll be the team’s defense that either saves or loses the game for the university.
Lane Kiffin’s Ole Miss squad, meanwhile, has an outstanding offense that ranked among the country’s elite teams in both average score per game and total offense. Behind center, you’ll find quarterback Jaxson Dart, who completed 65 percent of his passes this year and threw for nearly 3,000 yards. He and the rest of the Ole Miss offense will be tested by Penn State’s defense, for sure, but there’s no telling which team will come out on top.
Today's Peach Bowl is shaping up to be a fun, competitive affair. So read on to learn more about how you can watch the game when it kicks off at noon ET. And be ready for a competitive matchup — Penn State is just a 5.5-point favorite going into the game.
