Chick-fil-A Bowl
 < 2012  2014

The 2013 Chick-fil-A Bowl was a college football bowl game played on December 31, 2013, at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia. With sponsorship from Chick-fil-A, it was the 46th edition of the game known throughout most of its history as the Peach Bowl. The game featured the Duke Blue Devils from the Atlantic Coast Conference against the Texas A&M Aggies from the Southeastern Conference. It began at 8:00 p.m. EST and was aired on ESPN. It was one of the 2013–14 bowl games that concluded the 2013 FBS football season.

In a contest dominated by both teams' offensive units, Duke scored first and stayed ahead for most of the game. But with a little more than a minute left in regulation, Texas A&M returned an interception for a touchdown, and ended up winning by a score of 52–48. Although 67,496 tickets were distributed, the crowd was far less than capacity.

Duke finished the regular season with a record of 10–3 (6–2 ACC) and a BCS ranking of #24. Texas A&M had a record of 8–4 (4–4 SEC) and a BCS ranking of #21. The 2013 Chick-fil-A Bowl was the first-ever meeting of the two teams.[3]
