Saturday’s Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl between No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Washington — a College Football Playoff semifinal — will cap the prominent role the Dome has played in the sport since its opening in 1992, AJC sports writer Tim Tucker notes.

While best known as the home of the Falcons, the Dome will host its 152nd college football game, its 25th Peach Bowl.

The building is scheduled to be demolished next year and replaced by the $1.5 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium, under construction next door and now slated to open by August.
