HOUSTON -- Texas A&M, relegated to a bottom-tier postseason game after going 4-4 in the Big 12, accepted an invitation Monday to play in the galleryfurniture.com Bowl.
The Aggies, 7-4 overall, will make their 11th bowl appearance in 13 seasons under coach R.C. Slocum. They will face the winner of Friday's Conference USA game between TCU and Southern Miss.
The galleryfurniture.com Bowl, in its second season, is set for Dec. 28 in the Astrodome. With Reliant Stadium set to open next year, it should be the last major football game played at the world's first indoor stadium.
