Liberty Bowl: WVU vs Texas A&M

The Liberty Bowl has announced that the West Virginia Mountaineers will face the Texas A&M Aggies in Memphis on December 29th.  While WVU accepted the invitation to the bowl game the Liberty Bowl had to wait for the SEC to announce which team they would be sending to represent the conference. This may be the reason for the confusion as originally Tennessee AND the Liberty Bowl announced the Volunteers would be facing WVU in the game.

The Mountaineers, from the Big 12, finished out the 2014 season at 7-5 (5-4) while the Aggies, from the SEC, finished the season 7-5 (3-5).

WVU has only played in the Liberty Bowl once which was a 32-6 loss to Utah in 1964 and was played in the Atlantic City Convention Center. This will be the first meeting between the Aggies and Mountaineers. Though the two are not familiar with each other there will be a familiar face on the Aggies sideline. Former WVU assistant Jake Spavital is the current QB coach for the Aggies. Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin and Dana Holgorsen also coached together at the University of Houston.

The game is scheduled for a 2 PM EST kickoff.
