On the heels of Jimbo Fisher arriving in Aggieland, Texas A&M was selected to play Wake Forest in the 2017 Belk Bowl in Charlotte, NC, Dec. 29 at noon Central time.
With the firing of Kevin Sumlin and the hiring of Fisher, the Aggies (7-5) will be coached by interim head coach Jeff Banks in the game. Banks normally handles the special teams, but will fill the role for the bowl game.
A&M and Wake Forest have never played in the history of either programs. The Demon Deacons also finished 7-5 in 2017.
