Meineke Car Care Bowl
A Texas Tech official says three Red Raiders won’t be playing against Minnesota in Friday’s Meineke Car Care Bowl because they violated team rules.
Ryan Tannehill threw for 329 yards and a touchdown and Ben Malena ran for two more scores to lead Texas A&M to a 33-22 win over Northwestern on Saturday in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.
Texas A&M has had a difficult month. Preparing for Saturday’s Meineke Car Care Bowl against Northwestern has been a welcome distraction and the Aggies are determined to win as a tribute to both their recently fired coach and a fallen teammate.
Texas A&M has hired Houston’s Kevin Sumlin as its new coach.
Texas A&M hasn’t won a bowl since 2001. DeRuyter hopes that streak will end this year, and he indicated he’d be interested in the full-time head coaching job with the Aggies.
