The Peach Bowl 2014 live stream and televised college football game will bring Ole Miss vs. TCU on early Wednesday afternoon as two top ranked opponents battle it out on the gridiron. Both teams finished in the top ten this season, with TCU failing to go undefeated and suffering just one loss during their 2014 campaign. The latest televised and live streaming college football bowl game arrives thanks to ESPN’s networks on Wednesday.
According to SB Nation in their Dec. 30 report, Ole Miss allowed just 13.8 points per game to their opponents this past season which had them ranked best in the nation in scoring defense. Meanwhile, the TCU Horned Frogs were the second-best scoring team in the country, with an average of 46.8 points per game. Texas Christian finished with a record of 11-1 for the season, while Mississippi was 9-3 for theirs. Now they’ll put their two opposing styles up against one another for a final game of the season.
Wednesday’s game takes place at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, with junior quarterback Trevone Boykin looking to lead the Horned Frogs to their twelfth victory of this season. Boykin threw for 3,814 yards this past season and 30 touchdowns, with just seven interceptions. That helped TCU finish seventh in the nation in passing yards per game with an average of 332.8 per contest. They also have a top 20 defense, allowing just 20.3 points per game, which gives them a strong edge in this matchup.
While TCU looks to be the superior team here, it’s hard to take the Ole Miss Rebels lightly. They may have three losses this past season, but they were all to SEC ranked opponents including #3 Auburn and #4 Mississippi State. To their credit they knocked off Alabama back on Oct. 4 by a final of 23-17, showing their defensive prowess. The team moved up as high as #3 in the rankings after that and two more wins, but then suffered two straight defeats to drop them out of playoff contention. Overall, the Rebels have lost three of their last five games coming into this matchup.
They’re led by quarterback Bo Wallace who threw 219-of-358 passes for 3,085 yards and 22 touchdowns this season. On the ground, Jaylen Watson ran for 583 yards and five touchdowns, while Jordan Wilkins filled in to run for 358 yards and a touchdown. The team doesn’t necessarily rank high in offensive categories, but thanks to their defense, they’ve always got a shot to contain their opponents and hold them off for a win. Wednesday will definitely have the feel of a playoff game, even if neither team was able to reach that coveted destination this past season.
The 2014 Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl has a scheduled game kickoff time of 12:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Wednesday. The game can be watched on live television via ESPN on cable and satellite providers. Additionally, the broadband sports network, WatchESPN, will have the live streaming online coverage of the game.
