It has just been announced that Penn State will play Texas A&M in the Alamo Bowl.

San Antonio, TX -Texas A&M University (7-5) has accepted an invitation today to be the Big 12 representative in the 2007 Valero Alamo Bowl on Saturday, December 29 at 7:00 p.m. CST in San Antonio's 65,000-seat Alamodome.

"We look forward to welcoming the history and tradition of the Texas A&M Aggies to San Antonio to play the Penn State Nittany Lions," said John Yantis, Valero Alamo Bowl Chairman. "The 1999 Alamo Bowl match-up between Texas A&M and Penn State filled the Alamodome with a record crowd and over 6 million viewers in ESPN. We are excited to again have the opportunity match two tradition-rich universities in the 2007 Valero Alamo Bowl. "
