Hokies draw Camping World Bowl and Oklahoma State

The Cowboys also have two 1,000-yard receivers in James Washington (69 catches, 1,423 yards, 12 touchdowns) and Marcell Ateman (54-1,049-8).

The #22 Virginia Tech football team will face #18 Oklahoma State in the Camping World Bowl on December 28th in Orlando, Florida.

No. 22 Virginia Tech is 9-3 in Fuente's second season at the helm after taking over for legendary Hokies coach Frank Beamer. Oklahoma State ranks second nationally in total offense (575.7) and third in scoring (46.3).

This contest would mark the first meeting between Virginia Tech and Oklahoma State since 1972, a 34-32 victory in favor of the Hokies.


As we predicted earlier today, the Hokies will be headed to Orlando for their bowl game.

This is Oklahoma State's 12th consecutive bowl appearance and 15th in the last 16 years, missing in 2005, Mike Gundy's first season as the Cowboys' head coach.

The Camping World Bowl was previously known as the Russell Athletic Bowl and features an ACC program against a Big 12 opponent.

The bid extends Virginia Tech's 25-year bowl streak, the longest active streak in college football.
