Johnny Manziel might play his final college game in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

No. 21 Texas A&M, led by the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner, will face No. 24 Duke in the first-ever meeting between the schools on New Year’s Eve at the Georgia Dome, officials announced Sunday night.

Manziel is a third-year sophomore, making him eligible to enter the 2014 NFL Draft. He hasn’t revealed his plans for next season after guiding Texas A&M to a disappointing 8-4 record, with all four losses coming against fellow SEC teams ranked among the top 14 in The Associated Press poll.

Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin said Manziel has yet to make a decision on turning pro.

“If he does, he does,” the coach said. “Right now, we’re looking through that and evaluating his future. Then we'll go from there.”

Duke (10-3) was a surprising division winner in the ACC, posting the most wins ever at a school known more for basketball. The Blue Devils are eager to make up for their performance in the league championship game Saturday, when they were routed by top-ranked Florida State 45-7.

Manziel will clearly be the star attraction in Atlanta. While Johnny Football is not expected to repeat as the Heisman winner after becoming the first freshman to win college football’s top award, he put up another stellar season with 3,732 yards passing and 33 touchdowns, as well as leading the Aggies in rushing with 686 yards and eight TDs.
