The most prestigious bowl game they've ever been a part of.

Good for Rutgers; better for Wake at least to have

an opponent that wants to be there.

Now, the bowl folks need to pull out all the stops to get warm bodies in the stadium.

And Go Wake!

The NCAA Division I Football Oversight Committee will meet Thursday and determine the policy for a bowl replacement opponent for Wake Forest among 5-7 teams. If the committee leans heaviest on Academic Progress Rate, Rutgers would be the first option because it has the highest score. Bowl selection criteria for teams that don't meet the six-win threshold typically favor those with the highest APR scores.

Sources said the oversight committee also could defer to the Big Ten and the Gator Bowl about which team replaces Texas A&M, which withdrew from the game earlier Wednesday because of COVID-19 cases and other issues that impacted its roster of available players. Texas A&M athletic director Ross Bjork told ESPN that the program was down to 38 scholarship position players, of which 20 were offensive and defensive linemen.

They had plenty of walk on players too. The only thing is they knew they'd take the L and finish 7-5. They need to be ridiculed and called out on it.

They didn't mention how many opted out for NFL. They really need to be called on the carpet for it. No way they should have had that good of a recruiting class. Something dirty going on there.

Good for Rutgers and for the NCAA for making this happen.

I always appreciate those that seek creative solutions as opposed to seeking reasons not to play.

Fun fact.

Wake played in the inagural gator Bowl 75 years ago and beat the gamecocks. This is the first time back.

I was looking forward to Wake football beating A&M for the 2nd time in 4 years. Kinda makes me wonder if the whole fill in the blank SEC team didn’t really want to be there is coming into play here.

Question. If Wake beats Rutgers, do they get 2 Ws. One for the aTm forfeit and one for beating Rutgers?

I wonder where the 12th man went. I guess that’s just a fable now!,

I think WF should have tshirts made that they

Breakout after the game if they win that say “12th Win” but model them after the Aggies 12th man shirts
