2012 Russell Athletic Bowl, Rutgers vs. Virginia Tech: Teams, TV schedule, location and more

Al Messerschmidt

Virginia Tech and Rutgers will face off on Dec. 28 in the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando, Florida.

The ACC's Virginia Tech and Big East's (for now) Rutgers will face off in the Russell Athletic Bowl, Brett McMurphy reports.

The Russell Athletic Bowl typically pits the No. 2 team from the Big East against the No. 3 team from the ACC. Few bowl games have undergone as many name changes as the Russell Athletic Bowl, which has been formerly known as the Sunshine Classic, Blockbuster Bowl, Carquest Bowl, MicronPC Bowl, MicronPC.com Bowl, Visit Florida Tangerine Bowl, Mazda Tangerine Bowl, and Champs Sports Bowl.

My thoughts on the title sponsor's services: I actually do own some Russell Athletic apparel. For a while, I thought Russell Athletic disappeared, but, I did see a few t-shirts and they were really comfortable, so I bought a few. I play flag football in them sometimes, so that's almost an endorsement from me. I'm available for commercials, Russell Athletic.

Last year's score: Florida State 18, Notre Dame 14
