After much speculation throughout the week (including rumors that the powers that be wanted to avoid the Texas Bowl) the Aggies' bowl future is now clear.
Texas A&M vs. Louisville in Music City Bowl, source told @ESPN— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) December 6, 2015
Louisville finished the season 7-5, and 3rd place in the ACC Atlantic. They started September with three straight losses to Auburn, Houston, and Clemson, all of which were decided by seven or fewer points. They finished 2015 with a huge 38-24 comeback win over rival Kentucky, scoring 31 points in the second half.
The Aggies own the all-time series against Louisville 3-0, having played them three straight years from 1992-1994. The Cardinals are coached by former Arkansas football coach and amateur motorcyclist Bobby Petrino.
The Music City Bowl is at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 30th. Last year's game was one of the more exciting bowls of 2014-2015, as Notre Dame beat LSU on a field goal with four seconds left.
