Orange Bowl 2010: Connecticut Huskies vs. Virginia Tech Hokies
The Orange Bowl 2010 probably offers the least exciting BCS bowl, if it's the landing spot of the Big East champion University of Connecticut Huskies. The ACC champion Virginia Tech Hokies are a lock for the bowl thanks to the ACC tie-in, and they deserve it after reeling off an impressive 11 game winning streak.
Connecticut played their way into the bowl picture by rallying to beat South Florida in their final game, in order to clinch the Big East conference title. Their earlier win over West Virginia was clearly their biggest, and the reason they were capable of winning the conference and head to an illustrious bowl like the Orange Bowl.
This isn't a match made in heaven in terms of big geographic rivals, and UConn is still very much a basketball school, but they should have a big presence in south Florida thanks to alumni down in the area.
I expect Virginia Tech to pull out a win in this bowl game, they've been on quite a roll and i don't see it stopping in the Orange Bowl.
