Texas A&M was able to pry former Florida State Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher away from Tallahassee, but he won't coach in this game. Here are five takeaways from the Aggies' Belk Bowl loss over Wake Forest.
Wake Forest spotted Texas A&M (7-6) a 14-point first quarter lead following a pair of special teams miscues, but rattled off 31 straight points in a span of 11 minutes, 16 seconds to take a 31-14 lead.
Texas A&M had some momentum back on its side after the late score, and it double dipped effectively by scoring on the first drive of the second half. Then penalties and incomplete passes took care of the rest, as a desperation heave on fourth down with less than a minute left sealed the Deacons' second consecutive bowl victory.
Brutally cold temperatures settle in
It gets better - or worse: Adirondack Regional Airport in Saranac Lake recorded minus 22, with a wind chill of minus 40 degrees. Temperatures will fall below freezing Sunday evening and will remain near or below freezing through midday.
Wake is looking to win back-to-back bowl games for the first time since 2007-08, while A&M is trying to snap a three-game bowl losing streak.
Wake Forest enters play at 7-5 (4-4) on the season. He did just that, throwing for 400 yards and four touchdowns and rushing for another 68yards.
Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M: Someone had to be the beneficiary (or reason) for all these touchdowns, and Kirk was it.

Kirk, meanwhile, already has a season-high 133 yards receiving on six catches.
After Wake extended its advantage to 41-35 with a field goal, the Aggies regained the lead with 1:59 remaining in the third quarter on a one-yard touchdown run by Keith Ford. Washington dove for the deep pass with two defenders draped all over him, and he hung on even as the three of them collided in midair. Finally, the 2017 Texas A&M football season has come to and end.
The first block by Deshawn Capers-Smith was recovered for a score by Charles Oliver, and the second block by Roshauud Paul eventually set up a two-yard touchdown run by Trayveon Williams.

One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.
Wolford helped put Wake Forest back on top with 9:06 left in the fourth quarter when a drive he orchestrated ended with a one-yard touchdown run by Cade Carney on a fourth-down option pitch. "Credit to Texas A&M, under the circumstances of the interim coach, they played their tales off, and we were just the ones to make the last play", Dave Clawson told ESPN after the game. The 38 points Wake Forest scored in the first half is the most points Texas A&M has allowed in a first half this season. This game's over/under comes in at a combined 66 points.
