West Virginia Vs. Clemson: Mountaineers Officially Headed To 2012 Orange Bowl

Multiple reports on Twitter – including this one by Stewart Mandel – have the West Virginia Mountaineers heading to the Orange Bowl at Sun Life Stadium to face the Clemson Tigers on January 4, 2012, at 8:00 PM. Here’s Mandel’s entire BCS lineup:

Your BCS lineup will be: Title: LSU-Bama. Rose: Wis-Ore. Fiesta: Ok St-Stanford. Sugar: Va Tech-Michigan. Orange: Clemson-West Va.

After Cincinnati’s win over UConn on Saturday, which forced a three-way tie atop the Big East standings that set in motion West Virginia’s clinching of a BCS berth, the Mountaineers’ spot in the Orange Bowl comes as no surprise. Clemson earned its spot by defeating Virginia Tech in the ACC Championship Game on Saturday.

Clemson is 10-3 overall and has two wins over Virginia Tech, as well as victories over Florida State and Auburn. The Tigers lost three of their last four regular season games, however, dropping contests to Georgia Tech, North Carolina State and South Carolina.
