Michigan to face FSU in Orange Bowl

No. 6 Michigan to take on No. 11 Florida State in the Capital One Orange Bowl on Dec. 30.

Michigan is headed to south beach.

Despite not making the College Football Playoff earlier today, U-M earned a pretty decent consolation prize.

That prize, of course, will be No. 11 Florida State in the Capital One Orange Bowl on Dec. 30. 

The No. 6 Wolverines (10-2,  7-2 Big Ten) will take on the Seminoles (9-3, 5-X3ACC) for the third time in school history, the last time they played was in 1991, with FSU defeating U-M 51-31 in Ann Arbor, Mich. Michigan defeated FSU in its first match up in 1986. 

This will be the third time Michigan has played it the Orange Bowl, with the Wolverines holding a 1-and-1 record in the annual New Year's Six game.
