Capital One Orange Bowl OddsCollege Football Betting Online: The first college bowl game to be played at night in primetime has spent over half of its existence under the lights. In what has become a tradition with the Orange Bowl, the 2017 edition will again get a primetime start. Along with the Sugar and Sun, the Orange Bowl is the second-oldest bowl game behind the Rose Bowl. The inaugural game was played on New Year’s Day 1935 and 30 years later the game was played at night. It’s been that way ever since.

The 2017 Capital One Orange Bowl will take place on Saturday, December 30 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Orange Bowl Format

There were no contractual agreements with any conference in the early years of the game, but the Orange Bowl kept its roots close to home. However, from the 1950s into the mid-1990s, there was a handshake agreement with the Big 8 Conference with the champion invited most years. The 1978 season game actually featured the top two Big 8 teams squaring off with conference co-champions No. 4 Oklahoma beating No. 6 Nebraska 31-24.

The Orange Bowl was a member of the BCS and hosted the National Championship game in 2001 and 2005. But in the 2006 season, the BCS title tilt became its own entity. In 2009 and 2013 the Orange Bowl hosted its own game plus the BCS title matchup.

Starting with the 2014 season, the Orange Bowl is part of the CFP New Year’s Six games. It hosted a semifinal game in the 2015 season with Clemson defeating Oklahoma 37-17. Since the 2006 season the bowl has been affiliated with the Atlantic Coast Conference, taking that league’s champion unless it qualifies for the playoff in a year the Orange Bowl isn’t hosting. The SEC and Big Ten also have tie-ins with the bowl as does Notre Dame.

The first of the college bowl games to be played at night, the Orange Bowl has either started or finished at night each year beginning with the January 1, 1965 game. After playing on January 1 or later every year but one since its inception through the 2013 season game, the Orange Bowl has become a late December contest since 2014. For the fourth straight year the game will take place before the New Year.

Starting with the 2006 season, the bowl has exclusivity with the ACC and has become known as the Home of the ACC Champion. The first game under the new agreement saw ACC champ Wake Forest, which beat Georgia Tech in the conference championship game, fall 24-13 to Louisville.

With ACC champ Clemson taking part in the CFP semifinals, Florida State was invited to play in last season’s game. It was the Seminoles’ 10th appearance in the bowl and they evened their record by giving the ACC its fifth consecutive win. Despite the current winning streak, the conference still has a losing record in the game at 11-14.

The No. 1 ranked team in the country has played in the Orange Bowl 16 times during its history and has won the last seven outings. Clemson entered the 2015 game as the top-ranked team and defeated Oklahoma in a CFP semifinal game. The No. 1 team was taken down four times in a seven-year span from 1984 to 1990.

After nearly six decades at the Miami Orange Bowl Stadium, the game moved to its current location for the 1996 season playing. The 1999 game between Florida and Syracuse had to be moved back to its namesake with the NFL’s Dolphins hosting a playoff game on the same day.

The Orange Bowl has seen plenty in its 83 years. On January 1, 1965, the contest between No. 1 ranked Alabama and No. 5 Texas was the first bowl game to be televised in primetime. NBC did the honors starting a tradition that has seen the game either start or finish at night every year since. The 2017 edition will continue that trend with an 8 p.m. ET kickoff.

Given the games long-standing arrangement with the Big 8, that conference has made the most appearances, even though the league dissolved in 1996. Oklahoma holds the record for games and wins with 11 of the Sooners’ 12 victories and 16 of their 19 appearances coming as Big 8 members. OU has appeared three times as a member of the Big 12.

The hometown Miami Hurricanes have appeared in nine Orange Bowls and were a regular in the mid-1980s through the mid-1990s. UM played five times in that stretch and faced Nebraska four times, winning three. The Cornhuskers appeared six times in the same span and played in four straight. However, they went just 1-5 and are 8-9 overall appearing in the second-most games.
