Surprising Kansas gets Orange Bowl berth against ACC champion Virginia Tech

Kansas capped its best season in decades with its first Bowl Championship Series berth, a bid to the Orange Bowl to face No. 5 Virginia Tech.

The eighth-ranked Jayhawks (11-1) set a school record for victories and didn't lose until their regular-season game last week against Missouri. The Tigers won the Big 12 North and reached conference championship game, but got shut out of the BCS in favor of rival Kansas.

Virginia Tech (11-2) won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship for the second time in four seasons since joining the league.
