Did the the CapitalOne Bowl almost feature Northwestern and Texas A&M?

Interesting. Really interesting. Not that it matters much to me, other than beating Nebraska has more cache than beating Northwestern.

Of course, you'd like to think that Georgia gets to face Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl, if that is the way it worked out.  Hey, if the CapitalOne Bowl wanted a game that would utterly uninteresting, outside of seeing how many yards Manziel gains, Northwestern vs. TAMU would have been the way to go.

The only interesting thing is that two members of the committee talked about it. Of course, neither went on the record.

I maybe biased but I had much rather see A&M play OU, I hope A&M wins big too.

UGA vs Nebraska is a more interesting match than Northwestern vs A&M or UGA.

Local hotels may not like the choice by ESPN and for once the fans will like the conferences stepping in.

The Cap One Bowl has passed on Georgia few times in the past. Is is run by a bunch of Gator alums or something?
