Chick-fil-A Bowl roundup: Texas A&M, Duke prepare for Atlanta showdown

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

The Aggies are heavy favorites, but we could be treated to an exciting game at the Georgia Dome.

Texas A&M and Duke continue the tradition of top SEC and ACC schools squaring off in the Georgia Dome, as a 10-win Blue Devils' squad faces the Aggies in what should be a good one.

SEC teams have had an extraordinary amount of success following a Chick-fil-A Bowl win, and Good Bull Hunting took a light-hearted look at why winning the game is so important.

The last 10 winners of the bowl game from the SEC have gone on to see pretty nice seasons after winning in Atlanta. Of course, not Auburn, who has never had a winning season after winning the Chick-Fil-A/Peach bowl since the ACC vs. SEC setup. So let's just go ahead and remove Auburn from the equation, because science. That leave us with 7 teams that had winning seasons the next year. Of those 7, 3 went on to play in a BCS game the following season. The average win-loss record of those seven teams following the Chick-Fil-A bowl is 9.4-3.1. Hooray to 9.4 wins next season!

Good Bull Hunting is known internet-wide for their extensive infographic previews of Texas A&M games, and their newest edition is one of their finest yet.

GBH also unveiled some very special (and very fake) new uniforms for the Aggies, with hilarious results. Here's a preview of the chicken sandwich gloves:


They also have a photo gallery of the welcome party, including this gem of star quarterback Johnny Manziel with a Chick-fil-A mascot.


Good Bull Hunting also published a travel guide for fans heading to Atlanta to take in the game, highlighting some of the city's must-visit destinations.
