Texas A&M, Wake Forest to meet in Charlotte's Belk Bowl


It also will be A&M's first time to play in the Belk Bowl.

Belk has been the title sponsor of the Belk Bowl since 2011, working to help increase the Bowl's visibility both regionally and nationally.

"We look forward to representing the SEC in the matchup against Wake Forest and look forward to outstanding hospitality from the Belk Bowl and Charlotte, North Carolina", Texas A&M Director of Athletics Scott Woodward said.

A&M and Wake Forest have never played in the history of either programs.

Weaver is a senior kicker for Wake Forest and is 19-for-22 on field goal attempts and has scored 102 points this season for the Demon Deacons. The redshirt sophomore has recorded a team-high three interceptions, and has been disruptive in the backfield with 3.5 sacks and 7.0 tackles for loss. "The opportunity to play an outstanding SEC opponent like Texas A&M in a great stadium like Bank of America Stadium in a great bowl like the Belk Bowl is what our team has worked hard to achieve all season".

Texas A&M is on pace to possibly have another eight win season on tap.

On Sunday, the College Football Playoff committee first selected teams for the national semifinal games, the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual and the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

Multi-platinum-selling country music artist Scotty McCreery will be the headline act at the 2017 Belk Bowl FanFest Concert.

A&M overall is 17-21 in bowls.

However, the Aggies were the only SEC team to get bowl eligible and also fire the head coach. Banks normally handles the special teams, but will fill the role for the bowl game. Penn State defeated the Aggies and interim head coach Gary Darnell 24-17 in the 2007 Alamo Bowl.

"Texas A&M is an excellent football team", Clawson said.

Former Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher is the new leading man at Texas A&M, who will play Wake Forest in the 2017 Belk Bowl. Wake Forest is 7-4 in bowls.
