ATLANTA - Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl officials will travel to College Park for Saturday’s ACC battle between the Clemson University Tigers and the University of Maryland Terrapins at Byrd Stadium.


Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Team Selection Committee members Kyle Leach and Frank Stiteler, will scout the teams as potential ACC representatives in the 2001 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. Last week members also scouted Clemson versus Florida State in the Bowden Bowl III.
The ACC team selected for the 34th edition of the Bowl will be announced Dec. 1. The SEC representative will be named Dec. 9.


The Terps and Tigers are fighting for position in a tough ACC conference. No. 13 Maryland (5-1, 8-1), tied for first in the ACC, is seeking its first postseason bowl berth since 1990. The Terrapins first and only appearance in the Peach Bowl was a 17-16 loss to Georgia in 1973. Clemson, tied for fifth in the ACC, most recently appeared in the 1999 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.


The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl is the only guaranteed ACC vs. SEC match-up and is recognized as the most competitive bowl game in history with an average margin of victory of 8.8 points.
