Music City Bowl has its eye on these three SEC schools

BY foxsports • December 3, 2015

The official bowl announcements won't be made until Sunday but that hasn't stopped bowl officials from lining up potential teams in anticipation for the holiday bowl games soon to head our way. 

Nashville's Music City Bowl annually hosts at least one SEC team and according to the bowl's CEO Scott Ramsey, Georgia, Texas A&M and Tennessee are the three teams they want the most from the league. 

“I think Georgia fits in Nashville, and I think they fit in Jacksonville (TaxSlayer Bowl),” Ramsey said, according to the Tennessean. “As you put the puzzle together you look at the potential opponents because it’s about the matchups, and there’s some dodges in there. For example, if Louisville is in our mix, they played Georgia last year and we wouldn’t do that.”

“Tennessee is hot commodity,” Ramsey said. “They’re on a roll and their fans are fired up."

Ramsey wouldn't mind the Aggies making a return trip to his state's capital. 

"All I heard was how excited the A&M fans were that came for the Vanderbilt game, Ramsey said. “We’ve not had them (in the Music City Bowl) before and it’s a huge brand. It’s a fan base that I think in some point in time, whether it’s this year or whenever, is going to be a great fit for Nashville and somebody that will bring a lot of folks."

Last season, The Music City Bowl hosted Notre Dame and LSU, as the Irish won 31-28 following a controversial call at the goal line late in the game.
