Bowl projections 2012: Texas A&M, Michigan could meet in Capital One Bowl

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

The Capital One Bowl could feature a matchup of two dynamic quarterbacks, Michigan's Denard Robinson and Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel.

The Capital One Bowl, historically one of the strongest non-BCS bowl games, may feature two of the nation's most dynamic quarterbacks, Michigan's Denard Robinson and Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel.

Texas A&M has locked up a berth in the Orlando game, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy, and Michigan seems to be the favorite to face off against the Aggies. SB Nation's Jason Kirk projects a Michigan-A&M meeting in the Capital One Bowl, as does CBS Sports and ESPN. If Nebraska defeats Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game on Saturday, the Wolverines will almost certainly receive a Capital One invite. If the Badgers win, the Cornhuskers will likely be headed to Orlando.

Should the Wolverines find themselves matched up with the Aggies, it is possible that Michigan will be facing a Heisman Trophy winner in Manziel. The last time Michigan met a Heisman winner in the Capital One Bowl was on New Year's Day 2008, when the Wolverines defeated Tim Tebow and Florida, 41-35.
