Chick-fil-A Bowl

No. 24 Duke vs.

No. 21 Texas A&M

7 p.m. Tuesday

Georgia Dome, Atlanta

TV: ESPN

Records: Duke 10-3, 6-2 ACC; Texas A&M 8-4, 4-4 SEC

Key points: All eyes will be on Texas A&M redshirt sophomore quarterback Johnny Manziel. Heisman winner as a freshman in 2012, Manziel has wowed with elusive moves on the field, but this could be his last college game. Manziel could declare for the NFL Draft following the game. Either way, Duke’s defense will have to stop Manziel, who has thrown for 3,732 yards, rushed for a team-high 686 yards and has 41 total touchdowns. Sophomore Mike Evans has caught 65 passes for 1,322 yards and 12 touchdowns. Duke’s offense, led by quarterback Anthony Boone (1,833 passing yards) and receiver Jamison Crowder (1,197 yards, seven TDs), should have opportunities against an A&M defense that allows 30.9 points a game.

Tarrant ties: Duke freshman center Austin Davis played at Mansfield High. A&M freshman quarterback Kenny Hill played at Southlake Carroll and has played in four games this season. Junior Matt Joeckel, also a backup quarterback, went to Arlington High and has played in five games. Sophomore receiver Sabian Holmes, who played with Hill at Carroll, has started five games and has 17 catches for 210 yards and a touchdown. Sophomore defensive back Devonta Burns went to Arlington Martin, redshirt freshman offensive lineman Kimo Tipoti played for Hurst L.D. Bell, and freshman receiver Samuel McSwain played for Nolan Catholic.
