No. 3: The Texas A&M football team will have a new face at the quarterback position in their bowl game and it could be Haynes King

This is a thought that didn’t even enter my mind for quite a while after hearing this news, but an extremely important one — Zach Calzada, in all likelihood, will not be the starting quarterback for the Aggies’ bowl game against Wake Forest.

So who will be?

Again, this is pure speculation and probably not the case, but it’s worth exploring the idea that Haynes King could potentially be returning for the Aggies. It seems pointless and slightly dangerous to throw King, fresh off of an injury, into the Gator Bowl.

But if that was the plan, it would explain the timing of Calzada’s transfer decision. That said, with new transfer portal rules, announcing your transfer pre-bowl game might simply be the new wave.

Either way, there will be a new face in at the quarterback spot for Texas A&M.

If it’s not King, eyes will turn to Blake Bost, a walk-on freshman. If you want my opinion, I’d like to see Eli Stowers, who was inexplicably moved to the tight end spot, get some snaps. A&M won’t find practice like this for any of their quarterbacks, so why not get a bit experimental for the Gator Bowl.

Time will tell, but Bost will likely be Jimbo Fisher’s quarterback in a few weeks.
