ATLANTA Texas A&M University squared off against Duke Friday night in Atlanta, for an all-out battle of the shakes.
Days before both teams go head to head in the Chick-fil-A bowl, they met for a friendly shake down in downtown, with the best shake maker coming out on top.
"I'm not going to lie, before I started, I was feeling the pressure," said A&M Offensive Lineman Mike Mathews. "But once I started going, it kicked in and started doing the work."
Offensive line against Offensive line, and Texas A&M would turn out to be the cream of the crop.
It was a way to bring both teams together, cross the lines and have a little fun.
"It's fun. It helps build the sportsmanship and it shows that these guys are just like us," said Duke Offensive Lineman David Harding.
"It's a good reminder. We're all competitors, but we're still athletes and we still know the grind and the struggles," said A&M Offensive Lineman Cedric Ogbuehi. "So it's all respect."
Friday night's fun came before a full day of practice on Saturday.
