The state of Oklahoma has days left to play in its 15th straight bowl game, against Miami at the Cheez-It Bowl on Tuesday.

The two teams will meet in Orlando for the second time and the first since 1991. Kickoff will take place at 16.30 on ESPN. Both teams are looking for victory at Camping World Stadium after recent success there.

OSU beat Virginia Tech 30-21 at the Camping World Bowl 2017 while Miami beat West Virginia 31-14 at the 2016 Russell Athletic Bowl, playing in the same stadium.

“It was the only bowl win over the previous decade,” said Miami coach Manny Diaz. “We’ve been trying to build the program step by step and part of doing that is, you’re trying to achieve things that were hard to achieve here over the last few years. Winning a bowl match right in that category and then beating a team of Oklahoma State’s qualities would mean a lot too. “

A win for Oklahoma State will give the Cowboys their 20th bowl game win in school history. OSU holds a 19-11 record in bowl games, which is the fifth highest winning percentage for a school with at least 20 bowl game appearances. A win for the Hurricanes will give them a season of nine wins for the first time since winning 10 games in 2017 and their first bowl win in four years.

“You work really hard all year round and the bowl game is like a gift or a year-end prize,” said OSU cornerback Jarrick Bernard-Converse. “So of course you want to win and do well because you are going to be up against a good team and this is a special match.”
