Orange Bowl Schedule
Two of the best teams in college football will take to the field this winter for the 2014
Orange Bowl, and it's sure to be one of the top games in the sport's postseason. College football is already great, but it
gets taken to a completely different level during the bowl season, one of the best times of the year if you're a sports fan.
There is nothing quite like the atmosphere of a big college bowl game, particularly when it's the Orange Bowl that goes down
annually at Sun Life Stadium in Miami. Though all of the bowl games are great, this is the Orange Bowl – one of the
most anticipated football games in the country each and every season. As soon as you're there watching a great game alongside
thousands of your fellow fans, you'll be glad that you're not sitting anywhere else, as the atmosphere is sure to be nothing
short of electric.
The Orange Bowl annually features two top teams going head-to-head in the culmination of months of
hard work from the players and coaches involved. Last year #12 Clemson upset #7 Ohio State in a thriller of an offensive shootout
that ended in a score of 40-35. It was one of the most exciting games in recent Orange Bowl history, and that is really saying
something. This year two teams will take to the field at Sun Life Stadium on December 31st to ring in the New Year with some
incredible football competition. The teams in this game will be the top team in the Atlantic Coast Conference ranks, the second-best
team in the Southeast Conference or independent Notre Dame. Either way, this game is sure to be filled with some of the best
college football action you've ever seen, and the best way to experience it is to witness the contest live and in person.
Make sure you're there for all the awesome plays this December.
Orange Bowl History
Some of the bowl games
in NCAA football are relatively new, but that is certainly not the case when it comes to the iconic Orange Bowl. The history
of the Orange Bowl dates back to the first game in 1935 and has built a reputation over the years that makes it one of the
biggest games of the year. The ACC, one of the conferences that is always involved, is a conference absolutely packed with
electrifying playmakers from year to year, and many of them find their way to the Orange Bowl for a great game packed with
hard-hitting excitement. This game has seen some incredible finishes over the years, and you can be there when history is
made the next time at the Orange Bowl.
There's something special about college football
that just drives fans crazy, in a good way. If you've ever been to a college football game in person, then you've felt the
contagious exhilaration that comes with being in the stands for a big game. The Orange Bowl is one of the biggest games of
the year, so the excitement is even higher than it would be at your average NCAA football game. Make sure to be there for
this great contest that will feature two of the best teams in the sport. The historic nature of the Orange Bowl means it deserves
a top-notch venue, and it has just that inSun Life Stadium. Sun Life Stadium first opened in 1987 and has been a place for
top sports action ever since, serving as the home for the Miami Dolphins and the Miami Hurricanes. If you've never actually
seen the big game at Sun Life Stadium, there has never been a better time to change that, so start making your plans as soon
as you possibly can.
Orange Bowl Trivia
Who won the very first Orange Bowl?
The answer is Bucknell,
who took down Miami by shutting down the Hurricanes offense and holding them to zero points in the game. Bucknell's 26-0 victory
began the tradition of this game, and some of the best teams in the sport have played in this contest since then.
Though we all know the pros are great to watch too, there is something extra special about watching two programs
when it's only school pride that's on the line, which is exactly what keeps fans turning up to the Orange Bowl each and every
year. This is just one of those games that you're not going to be able to duplicate from home no matter how hard you might
try, as the home experience is simply incomparable to the one you'll end up with if you actually make it out to Sun Life Stadium
to join in the hard-hitting excitement first-hand. You'll be amazed at the passion that each fan brings to the stadium, making
for an incredible atmosphere that the Orange Bowls deserves.
