Orange Bowl 2012: Flag-Bearing Air Force Cadets To Parachute Into Sun Life Stadium

Prior to kickoff of Wednesday's Orange Bowl matchup between the West Virginia Mountaineers and Clemson Tigers, five cadets from the Air Force Academy's Wings of Blue team will parachute into Sun Life Stadium while carrying the U.S. flag, the Associated Press reports. The Air Force Parachute Team may be made of collegians, but they're far from amateur in skill: Air Force won the 2011 National Collegiate Parachuting Championship.

Great Orange Bowl tickets are still available for the game, so if the promise of watching college students jump out of an airplane and the prospect of lots and lots and lots of points inspire you, snap 'em up.
