Wake Forest (10-3, 7-1 ACC) had a breakout year with their first double-digit-win season since 2006 thanks to an exciting offense as Dave Clawson remains one of the most underrated head coaches in college football.
Rutgers (5-7, 2-7 Big Ten) is the only five-win team playing in a bowl this year as the Scarlet Knights are replacing the Texas A&M Aggies, which opted out of the Gator Bowl, citing COVID issues and injuries.
