The Association of Former Students

The fightin' Texas Aggies will be in Atlanta's Georgia Dome on New Year's Eve to face the Duke Blue Devils in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. 

The game will be the first time for the Aggies and Duke to face off in football and the first time for the Aggies to play in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, which was previously known as the Peach Bowl. The game is set for 7 p.m. Dec. 31 and will be televised by ESPN. 

The Blue Devils are celebrating one of their most successful football seasons in school history, finishing 10-3 and winning the ACC's Coastal Division. Duke is ranked 24th in the latest BCS standings, while Texas A&M is ranked 21st.

This is the fifth straight year the Aggies have earned a postseason bowl trip. They won their last two, beating Northwestern in the 2011 Texas Bowl and Oklahoma in the last Cotton Bowl.
