MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) West Virginia will make its first Liberty Bowl appearance in half a century when it meets Texas A&M on Dec. 29.

The Mountaineers (7-5) lost 32-6 to Utah in the 1964 Liberty Bowl at Atlantic City, New Jersey, rather than the game's current home of Memphis, Tennessee.

Texas A&M's only previous Liberty Bowl appearance came when it lost 20-0 to Southern California in 1975.

The Aggies (7-5) have lost five of their last seven games. West Virginia ended a three-game skid Nov. 29 by beating Iowa State 37-24.

West Virginia's appearance marks the first year of the Liberty Bowl's partnership agreement with the Big 12. In previous seasons, the bowl typically matched a Southeastern Conference team with the Conference USA champion.

The Liberty Bowl is sponsored by AutoZone.
