A pair of 6-6 teams will meet in Houston on New Year's Eve in the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas.  

Texas A&M will play its last game as a member of the Big 12 conference, before heading to the SEC next season.  

Their opponent will be the Northwestern Wildcats out of the Big Ten conference.

The matchup features a pair of teams with long droughts since their last bowl win, and an intriguing duel between two top flight offenses each possessing strong-armed and talented quarterbacks.
