The Rutgers football team is going bowling.
The team accepted a late invitation to play in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl.
Rutgers got the invite after Texas A&M pulled out of the game due to a combination of COVID-19 issues and season-ending injuries.
"Better late than never," the team said in a post on Twitter.
Rutgers will take on Wake Forrest in Jacksonville, Florida on Dec. 31.
Rutgers is bowl-eligible despite a 5-7 record. ESPN reports that the NCAA Division I Football Oversight Committee determined that Academic Progress Rate would be the greatest determining factor in selecting a replacement for a bowl game.
