Sugar Bowl 2012: Virginia Tech Will Participate In Game, According To Report

In a major surprise, Virginia Tech will participate in a BCS Bowl after all, even with its 38-10 ACC Championship Game loss to Clemson. The Hokies will play in the 2012 Sugar Bowl, according to Bryan D. Fisher. This contradicts an earlier report that suggests the Hokies would go to the Chick Fil-A Bowl.

The Hokies lost twice all year, both to Clemson. However, most suspected their lack of marquee wins would doom them further down the bowl picture. Instead, the ACC will get two teams in the BCS.

The Hokies' ascension means Virginia will replace them in the Chick-Fil A Bowl. It remains unclear who the Hokies would play in the Sugar Bowl.

Game date, time: 8:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, January 3, 2012 

Location: Superdome in New Orleans, La.

TV channel: ESPN

2011 winner and loser: Ohio State, Arkansas
