Many have questioned the Chick-fil-A Bowl's selection of Duke ahead of more established programs such as Miami and Virginia Tech, but bowl president Gary Stokan told the Associated Press that "there was no doubt in our minds" about Duke.

"We in our bowl game take great pride in letting teams play themselves into our game or play themselves out of our game," Stokan told the AP. "It's not some cigar smoke-filled room where we're sitting up making these decisions. It's the players that are making the decisions. ... Duke played [its] way into our game and [is] very deserving of being in our game."

The Blue Devils (10-3) will play No. 20 Texas A&M (8-4) on Dec. 31 in the Atlanta-based bowl.
