The 7-5 Syracuse Orange will end their drought of bowl game appearances when they face the 7-5 Kansas State Wildcats in the inaugural 2010 Pinstripe Bowl in the Bronx, New York on December 30, 2010.
Virginia Tech has played in 3 other Orange bowl games (1-2) beating the Cinicinnati Bearcats in 2008-2009 while losing to the Kansas Jayhawks during the 2007-2008 campaign. VA Tech also lost to the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the 1996 Orange Bowl. Hokies head coach Frank Beamer also won his 240th game with the win over FSU this Saturday. Beamer is has the most wins of any active coach in division I-FBS not named Joe Paterno.
The Hokies Orange Bowl berth is particularly surprising given the fact that they started off the season 0-2 before running the table to a perfect ACC regular season. VA Tech is loaded with talent as evidenced by the 11 players that were recently named first- or second-team All-ACC by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor, kicker Chris Hazley, and cornerback Jayron Hosley were named to the 1st team, while guard Jaymes Brooks, tackle Blake DeChristopher, special teams returnman David Wilson, defensive end Steven Friday, tackle John Graves, linebacker Bruce Taylor, safety Davon Morgan, and punter Brian Saunders all earned 2nd team honors.
The Orange Bowl is part of the Bowl Championship Series(BCS) and typically features the ACC Champion against the 2nd best at large selections – the Sugar Bowl gets the highest ranked at large bid.
The Orange Bowl began in 1935 and is the second oldest college football games in the country behind the Rose Bowl (began in 1902). Virginia Tech will be looking to win their second Orange Bowl in their 4th appearance.
