The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our sports world once again, as Texas A&M confirms its football team is not on the roster for the upcoming Gator Bowl. 

A&M University tweeted Wednesday in addition to "COVID-19 issues within the program," season-ending sports injuries played a factor in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl against Wake Forest. 

Aggie Coach Jimbo Fisher said in a statement released by the University the situation "is unfortunate." 

The game was slated for December 31, 2021.
