UPDATE: Rutgers University will replace Texas A&M in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl.

The Aggies withdrew from the bowl because of COVID-19 issues Wednesday.

According to a tweet from the school, the Aggies’ roster is not in a position to safely play in the Dec. 31st game against Wake Forest.

“It is unfortunate, but we just don’t have enough scholarship players available to field a team,” Aggie head football coach Jimbo Fisher said, according to the university.

The bowl game organizers worked with the NCAA, ESPN, and conference leaders to find a replacement team.
