Three Reasons Why You Should Watch The TaxSlayer Gator Bowl

– Texas A&M had a really, really good first season under Jimbo Fisher. It was 8-4, and it didn’t win an SEC title quite yet, but two of the losses were to Clemson and Alabama – hardly any shame there – and the other two were on the road against Mississippi State and Auburn. That stinks, but the 74-72 seven overtime win over LSU is all that anyone is going to remember out of this regular season.

But this might be a moment. This is going to be a hot Aggie team this offseason no matter what, but win this, and the momentum and excitement will be through the roof.

Of course NC State has something to lose. This is a good team shooting for a very, very quiet ten-win season, but it flew way under the radar after losing a shootout to Syracuse, a thriller over Wake Forest, and getting blown away by Clemson. It’s missing a few key parts of the puzzle – more on that in a moment – and this will mostly be assumed to be a Texas A&M invitational. The pressure is off. The Wolfpack can bomb away, and they’re about to turn it loose.

Get ready for a whole lot of offense. Texas A&M finished second in the SEC in total offense, only behind Alabama – averaging 466 yards per game – and NC State finished behind Clemson the ACC in total O averaging 471 yards per outing. It’s the last college football game of 2018. It should be worth it.
