West Virginia Vs. Clemson, 2012 Orange Bowl: Time, Location, History And More

Game day is finally here as the West Virginia Mountaineers and the Clemson Tigers are set to kick off in what will be the final BCS game before the National Championship next week. The Tigers are currently favored by three points as they look to represent the ACC against a Big East team that has already announced its intentions to leave that conference.

It's expected to be a high-scoring affair with a variety of playmakers on both teams and mediocre defenses lining up on the other side of the ball. The oddsmakers have currently set the over under at 62 points.

After calling the Outback Bowl earlier this week, the Monday Night Football duo of Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden will have the call from Miami tonight.

Game date, time: 8:30 pm ET, Wednesday, January 4th

Location: Sun Life Stadium, Miami Gardens, FL

TV channel: ESPN/ESPN3

2010 winner and loser: Stanford, Virginia Tech
