Before ringing in the new year, we get the second College Football Playoff semifinal as the No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs face the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes.

 The CFP Semifinal at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta is a de facto home game for the Bulldogs.

Reigning national champion Georgia entered the day as one of three FBS teams that had not allowed 21-plus points in any half this season

, but that quickly changed as Ohio State jumped out to a 21-7 lead by the midway mark of the second quarter.

Despite the early deficit, the Bulldogs put together three scoring drives and briefly led 24-21. Some bad news for the Bulldogs: 

Georgia is 1-9 under Kirby Smart when trailing by at least 14 points and the Buckeyes quickly regained the lead

thanks to a 37-yard touchdown pass from C.J. Stroud that came with 49 seconds remaining before the break.

The winner of this one will move on to face the TCU Horned Frogs, but in the meantime, here are the sights and scenes from Atlanta.
