We kicked off the new year with a quick trip to Atlanta to watch the UCF Knights take on the Auburn Tigers in the 2018 Chic-Fil-A Peach Bowl. It turned out to be a long day, but oh so worth it as the Knights got a huge win and finished the season as the only undefeated team in college football.
Our flight was full of Knights fans heading up to Atlanta. It made for such a fun experience as soon as we arrived at the airport.
Mercedes-Benz Stadium was a short MARTA ride from the airport so we arrived at the stadium with plenty of time before kick-off at 12:30pm. Thankfully, we didn’t have to spend too much time outside since it was 19 degrees, but we did get to see a couple snow flurries. The stadium was unbelievable. It was incredibly nice and everything was reasonably priced.
Our seats were amazing. The game was crazy, intense, and so much fun. The UCF fans were insanely loud and the Auburn fans headed home early.
We all had our obligatory Chic-Fil-A sandwich and cheered on the Knights to victory. The end of the game celebrations were so much fun. After the game, we headed back to the airport to wait out our long delay and watch the other football games happening on New Year’s Day. We finally boarded our flight at 11:45pm and our heads hit the pillow about 2am. It was such a great experience and the long day was completely worth it to see a Knights win with great friends. A huge thanks to my parents for watching the kids while we snuck away for the day.
