Chick fil A: Georgia-Miami. Russell Athletic bowl in Orlando: #Duke vs. Louisville— Laura Keeley (@laurakeeley) December 8, 2013
A Duke beat writer tweeted that Georgia and Miami will meet in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl earlier today throwing everyone off the scent of A&M to Chick-Fil-A. She later changed her tune:
source confirms #Duke to the Chick-fil-A bowl in Atlanta on the 31st. I've learned much about bowl politics today— Laura Keeley (@laurakeeley) December 8, 2013
The Outback Bowl in Tampa will likely pick either Texas A&M or LSU. If they take A&M, there will be political issues with the LSU admin and the SEC offices for passing over the Tigers again. If the Outback Bowl takes LSU, the Ags will fall to either the Chick-Fil-A Bowl in Atlanta to face Duke or the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville (if Chick-Fil-A takes Georgia).
4:09: New reports that A&M will face Duke in the Chick-Fil-A bowl:

Where do you think the Aggies will end up?
