DEC 30-31 Bowl Game Predictions In Review

Dec 31, 2013; Atlanta, GA, USA; Texas A

Chick-Fil-A Bowl — Texas A&M 52 Duke 48

What I said:

"Duke won’t be able to hang with Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M’s offense. This game will be a shootout and Duke doesn’t have the firepower to keep up. Texas A&M 45 Duke 27"

There’s always at least one bowl game, each season, that is recognized as an “instant classic”.

The game between Duke and Texas A&M would be that game.

Duke was able to not only hang with Texas A&M’s offense, but actually dominated them in the first half, leading 38-17 at halftime.

But then Johnny Manziel took over and led the Aggies to an improbable second half comeback. This was likely Manziel’s last collegiate game, as all indications are that he’ll declare for the NFL draft.
