Texas A&M is playing Wake Forest in the Belk Bowl on Friday in Charlotte. And folks, it’s a belk party.
The Aggies blocked — i.e., they belked — two Demon Deacon punt attempts in the first three-and-a-half minutes of the game.
The first, which was recovered in the end zone for the easiest touchdown the Aggies’ Charles Oliver will ever score in his entire life:
That punt still traveled a net of 19 yards despite getting swatted. So that’s two belked punts for the Aggies in just a shade more than three minutes, with the ensuing A&M drive after the second belking starting at the 11:35-remaining mark of the first quarter. The Aggies scored with a short field to take a 14-0 lead.
Wake Forest answered with a 50-yard touchdown belk from QB John Wolford to receiver Scotty Washington, setting up a potential barnburner.
