The Texas A&M football team’s practices for the Gator Bowl on Dec. 31 were stopped on Saturday due to an outbreak of COVID-19, sources have told TexAgs.com.

“Texas A&M football operations have been shut down due to several positive COVID tests within the program,” the publication states.

The Aggies (8-4, 4-4 SEC), who were ranked No. 25 in the most recent College Football Playoff poll, have missed three days of practice so far.

Texas A&M is scheduled to play No. 17 Wake Forest (10-3, 7-1 ACC) in the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Florida, at 10 a.m. central time on New Year’s Eve on ESPN.

Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher just completed the early signing date portion of the 2021-22 recruiting cycle with the No. 1 class in Rivals.com and 247 Sports.
