Venue: Camping World ( Formerly Russell Athletic Bowl and before that Champs Sports Bowl )
When: December 28, 2017 - 5:15pm ET / ESPN
Where: Camping World Stadium
Who: Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys
Both Virginia Tech's Justin Fuente and Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy were rumored to be top candidates for some of the bigger coaching gigs in the country this year. Both have rebuffed all offers and will coach in the Camping World Bowl in Orlando.
This clash between V-Tech and Okie State is the first battle of ranked foes of the bowl season.
The Cowboys weren't going to play in the CFP anyway this year, but their chances were smashed when they were beaten by Kansas State just before Thanksgiving. One of the most talented offenses in America was beaten three times in Stillwater this season, something that Gundy's crew rarely did before this year.
V-Tech shouldn't be ashamed of its three losses this season to Clemson, Miami and Georgia Tech, the latter two of which came on the road. The Hokies were the better team on the field in most of their games this season, though they didn't get a slew of chances against the teams in the middle of the tops in the game and the middling garbage of the ACC Coastal Division.
The Hokies haven't missed a bowl game since 1992, but their results in said games haven't been great. They're winners of three in a row, including taking the Belk Bowl in Fuente's first season last year, and he's hoping to continue this winning streak at the Camping World Bowl, a game last won by Frank Beamer in 2012.
Oklahoma State has wins in five of its last seven bowl appearances. Gundy is hoping that the Pokes can wrap up a third-straight 10-win season and his sixth in the last eight years with a win in the Camping World Bowl.
Opening Line: Oklahoma State -6.5
Preview: The high scoring offense of the Oklahoma State Cowboys goes up against the stout defense of the Virginia Tech Hokies in the Camping World Bowl on Thursday, December 28 in Orlando on ESPN. The Cowboys averaged 46.2 points per game this season, third-best in the nation, while the Hokies allowed just 13.5 points per contest, fifth-best in the country. The Cowboys are led on offense by quarterback Mason Rudolph who threw for 4,553 yards this season, while the Hokies are led on defense by linebacker Tremaine Edwards who had 102 tackles and 5.5 sacks this season.

From there, it was renamed the Carquest Bowl (1994-1997), the Micronpc Bowl (1998-1999), the Micronpc.com Bowl (2000), the Visit Florida Tangerine Bowl (2001) and the Mazda Tangerine Bowl (2002-2003).
In 2004, when Champs Sports signed on for naming rights to the Champs Sports Bowl.
The most recent one was in 2011 when, Russell Athletic's signed on for naming rights to the Russell Athletic Bowl.
Teddy Bridgewater and the Louisville Cardinals steam-rolled Miami Hurricanes with a 36-9 win in front of 51,098 at the Russell Athletic Bowl.
The win gave Louisville (12-1) its second 12-win season in school history and its third bowl victory in four seasons under coach Charlie Strong.
The Cardinals gave up the game's first points when Miami safety Deon Bush arrived untouched in the Louisville backfield and sacked Bridgewater for a safety. Everything after that was all Louisville.
