“The team at TaxSlayer is looking forward to having NC State and Texas A&M join us in Jacksonville for this year’s TaxSlayer Gator Bowl,” said Brian Rhodes, President and CEO, TaxSlayer. “They’ll be at the center of an unforgettable New Year’s Eve event which will include a festive post-game show by Platinum-selling recording artist Cole Swindell and fireworks to ring in 2019. We can’t wait to celebrate New Year’s Eve with the teams and fans of NC State and Texas A&M.”

The #19 Texas A&M Aggies finished this season with an 8-4 record and will serve as the Southeastern Conference representative. They will be making their second appearance in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl.  The Aggies last appearance was in the 1957 contest against Tennessee for Paul Bear Bryant’s final game at Texas A&M.

The NC State Wolfpack, the Atlantic Coast Conference representative, finished their regular season with a 9-3 record after winning four of their final five contests.  They will be making their fourth appearance in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl.  The Wolfpack last appeared in the 2003 game against Notre Dame.
