New dates have been set for the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl and Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic for the 2023 season, according to an announcement by ESPN on Thursday.

The Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic, previously set for Saturday, Dec. 30, 2023, has been moved up one day and will now be played on Friday, Dec. 29, 2023 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. This year’s matchup will feature two at-large teams selected by the College Football Playoff (CFP) Selection Committee.

ESPN will broadcast the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic and the game will kickoff at 8:00pm ET.

The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl was previously slated in the Friday night spot that the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic now occupies. As a result, the Peach Bowl will now be played on Saturday, Dec. 30 and the game will kickoff at noon ET with television coverage on ESPN.
