West Virginia Mountaineers Will Represent The Big East In The Orange Bowl

As most expected, West Virginia University's football team will be heading to Miami to play in the 2012 Discover Orange Bowl for the first time in school history and will face the Clemson Tigers on Wednesday, January 4th. Any remaining suspense was eliminated when the Orange Bowl website started selling WVU/Clemson merchandise earlier this evening. So it will be Dana Holgorsen vs. Dabo Swinney and Geno Smith vs. (former Mountaineer commit) Tajh Boyd. And based on the bit of the ACC Championship game I watched last night, WVU will face yet another impressive defensive line come early January.

UPDATE: WVU Sports Travel now selling Orange Bowl packages.
