Report: Sugar Bowl Selects Virginia Tech

Most of the rumored pairings for the college football bowl games are interesting if largely unremarkable.  But SI.com's Stewart Mandel reports that the Sugar Bowl has selected Virginia Tech, which would be a genuine surprise.

The Sugar Bowl would usually feature the SEC Champion, under the current NCAA postseason alignment, but with LSU will be playing in the National Championship Game the Sugar Bowl is allowed to select an at-large host team.

Virginia Tech finished the season 11-2 with a loss to the Clemson Tigers in the ACC Championship game.  The Hokies were ranked fifth in the BCS entering that game, but following the loss were expected to be destined for the Chik-Fil-A Bowl, a non-BCS December bowl game.

Should the report prove true, this would be the first year that the ACC saw two of its schools compete in BCS games. (As ACC Champion, Clemson receives an automatic bid to the Orange Bowl.)
