BLACKSBURG, Va. (WVIR) -

The #22 Virginia Tech football team will face #18 Oklahoma State in the Camping World Bowl on December 28th in Orlando, Florida.

The game will be the third all-time meeting between the two schools, and the first since 1972.

The Hokies are playing in a bowl game for the 25th year in a row, which is the second-longest streak in college football history.

Head coach Justin Fuente says, "It's something we're really proud of.  It's the model of consistency, the model of a program.  Not just a good season, or a good team, or a good player.  I think it's the mark of a program.  Obviously coach Beamer has had many more of those 25 years than I have, but I think it's a true testament to him, and his philosophy, and his program, that they were as consistent as they were for so many years."

Tech went 9-3 overall this season, and 5-3 in the ACC.

Virginia Tech has won three-consecutive bowl games, including the Belk Bowl last year.

Kickoff in the Camping World Bowl is set for December 28th at 5:15 PM at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.
