With a surprise invite to the Sugar Bowl for Virginia Tech, their in-state rival Virginia slots into the Chick-Fil-A Bowl in a matchup with the defending BCS National Champion Auburn Tigers.

At one point in the season, Virginia looked to potentially be contenders in the ACC but were brought back down to earth by Virginia Tech in a 38-0 loss to close out the season.

Auburn had a disappointing season and couldn't seem to make up for the losses of Cam Newton and Nick Fairley.

But a win in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl could be a bright spot in the season for the Tigers, and with the draw against the Cavaliers instead of the Hokies, it seems as though a win could be in the cards.
