03:49 PM ET 04.25 | The Chick-fil-A Bowl will be renamed the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl as part of its agreement with the new College Football Playoff. As one of the semifinal host sites, the conference commissioners wanted the bowl names to be parallel, as they all had a sponsor and a formal name. The game has been known as just the Chick-fil-A Bowl since 2005, when the Peach part of the name was dropped.

Can all the other bowls get their original names back as well? Like make the Capital One Bowl go back to either the Citrus Bowl, or even further back to the Tangerine Bowl?

I remember the words of a great man who said, "you can't spell citrus without UT".

And I thought it was kinda chicken <hit when they changed the name from Tangerine to the Citrus

All the oranges, lemons, limes and cumquats got jealous, and demanded equality in the eyes of CFB.

In a tall tumbler of gin & tonic over a glacier calving of ice cubes.
