There’s so much more to Orlando than its theme parks. We have sports, and we know the best way to enjoy the thrill of your favorite team playing is to actually be there cheering them on to victory. Of all the sports and fans, there’s nothing like college football and its legions of fans. The game is fast. The fans absolutely dedicated—from birth at times! Any diehard fan knows you won’t want to miss what Orlando has coming up between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day: The Camping World Bowl.
This year’s edition of the Camping World Bowl will take place on December 28th and feature teams from the Big 12 and the ACC conferences. The teams for this year’s matchup have yet to be decided, but previous participants include the likes of Florida State, Baylor, Miami, Oklahoma State, Clemson, Notre Dame, and Virginia Tech. This year’s picks will be chosen at the end of the season, and this post will be updated with a game preview and predictions later this season when the teams have been selected.
This classic postseason game was born in Miami where it was named the Blockbuster Bowl. These games were held at the Joe Robbie Stadium (now known as Hard Rock Stadium, and host of the Orange Bowl). Since then the bowl game has changed names many times. Camping World Bowl is the fourth name it has had since moving to Orlando. Fans may remember the older names such as the Russell Athletic Bowl, the Champs Sports Bowl, and the Tangerine Bowl (during its time in Orlando).
Whatever you want to call it, this college football game is epic and one you do not want to miss. Consider this: Camping World Stadium is conveniently located just minutes away from Midpointe Hotel, a Rosen property, so book your stay today online or by calling 1-407-352-1507.
