After a wild Sunday of Bowl speculation, in which Texas A&M was projected to be in the Outback Bowl, Cotton Bowl, and Gator Bowl at different times by various outlets, the Aggies will head to Atlanta to face the Duke Blue Devils in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31 at 8 p.m. in the Georgia Dome. Here are the reports from Twitter:
Just got word from two separate sources (one A&M) that Aggies to Chick-fil-A bowl on New Year's Eve.— Billy Liucci (@billyliucci) December 8, 2013
Everyone was thrown off the scent of A&M to the Chick-Fil-A Bowl earlier today when Duke beat writer Laura Keeley reported that Georgia and Miami would appear in the game. She later changed her statement:
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
According to Aggie Tickets, 12th Man Foundation members should find out before midnight tonight whether their bowl ticket requests have been fulfilled. And for any students wanting to make the trek to Atlanta, the online ticket pull starts tonight:
I want to celebrate, but Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sunday.
