Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas - Reliant Stadium, Houston, TX
A look at the stats that mattered in Texas A&M's 33-22 win over Northwestern in the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas, from Jeff Fuller's heroics, to a ferocious A&M pass rush, to a stunted collapse.
One team can't win with its back to the wall and the other didn't win until its back was to the wall. So what happens when they share the same field?
Northwestern's bowl game is tomorrow. Who do you think will win? Yes, you. Our staff already said who they think, you're just holding out.
