Last week, Rutgers football went from home for the holidays to unexpectedly bowl bound when Texas A&M dropped out of the Gator Bowl. On just eight days notice and deep into offseason workouts, the Scarlet Knights are set to attempt to pull off a monumental upset. No. 17 Wake Forest advanced to the ACC Championship game, has a prolific offense and hasn’t stopped practicing since the preseason began in August.
