COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M has accepted an invitation to play in the Cotton Bowl.

The Aggies (No. 18 BCS, No. 19 AP) will learn on Sunday which team from the Southeastern Conference they will play. It will be Texas A&M's first appearance in the game since 2005 and their 12th overall.

Texas A&M (9-3) enters the game with a six-game winning streak and a victory in the game would give the Aggies their first 10-win season since 1998.

Senior linebacker/defensive end Von Miller, who grew up in the Dallas suburb of DeSoto, says he is excited to play his last game "in my backyard."

The 75th edition of the game is set for Jan. 7 with a 7:27 p.m. Central Time kickoff.
