If you enjoy offense then the Meineke Car Care Bowl is a must watch. Texas A&M and Northwestern both have explosive offenses and pedestrian defenses. The Aggies are led by quarterback Ryan Tannehill and receiver Jeff Fuller both of whom are considered second round prospects in April’s upcoming draft. Northwestern is in a position to contain the Aggies passing attack as their defense is led by seniors Jordan Mabin and Brian Peters, a cornerback and safety respectively. The two wildcats are both considered late round selections at this time.
