Who is Catherine Gurd aka the ‘Peach Bowl Girl’?

Following her attendance at the College Football Playoff semifinal between Georgia and Ohio State, college athlete Catherine Gurd brought in the new year on Saturday by going viral.

Following the broadcast that highlighted the Xavier University lacrosse player, someone wrote onTikTok, “Someone find me this girl from Ohio State… for the love of god.”

Gurd confirmed the rumors that she was the “Peach Bowl Girl” in question in a video that she posted on her own TikTok channel on Monday. She captioned the video, “When you kick off 2023 with a new name,” with the clip.

In a recent TikTok video, Gurd addressed the attention she was receiving by jokingly commenting, “POV your 3 seconds on tv somehow makes you go viral.”

Gurd, who has 23,000 Instagram followers and growing, uploaded the now-famous screenshot of herself in a post on Sunday recapping the exciting night on other social media platforms. She captioned the picture, “Buckeyes forever.”

When Ohio State kicker Noah Ruggles missed what would have been a game-winning, 50-yard field goal against the Bulldogs in the Peach Bowl, the Buckeyes were dealt a crushing defeat. Georgia defeated Ohio State 42-41 to advance to the NCAA championship game.
