Stanford is off to Florida where they will face off against Virgina Tech in the Orange Bowl in Miami on Janaury 3, 2011.  The Stanford football team has come a long way under the guidance of head coach, Jim Harbaugh, who inherited a program that posted a 1 -11 season prior to his hiring and now have an impressive 11-1 season, now at #4 in the BCS national ranking. This Orange Bowl should be an excellent game; the two teams have never played and Virginia Tech dominated the Atlantic Coast division, beating traditional powerhouse teams such as Miami and Florida State.

In a recent article, Coach Harbaugh discussed the Orange Bowl challenge. “It’s a great bowl, and it’s a great reward for our players,” said coach Jim Harbaugh. “Now it’s known where we’re going, and our intent is to win it.”

Good Luck, Stanford.  We will be rooting for you!
