The Texas A&M Aggies, famous for their 12th man slogan folklore, have been forced to withdraw from the Gator Bowl versus the Wake Forest Deacon Demons due to COVID-19 protocols. In other words, it seems as though the Aggies needed a 20th man, if not more.

It’s a rough ending to a season that had high hopes for head coach Jimbo Fisher and the Aggies. And while they did squeak out a win over the eventual SEC champions, the Alabama Crimson Tide, like the Texas Longhorns, Aggie players will be staying home this year.
