The Miami Hurricanes and Oklahoma State Cowboys will face off in the 2020 Cheez-It Bowl. The game will take place at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. Kickoff is currently scheduled for 5:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, December 29th, and the game will air on ESPN and be available via live stream at WatchESPN.
The 18th-ranked Miami Hurricanes (8-2) enter postseason off of a 62-26 loss to the North Carolina Tar Heels on December 12. Quarterback D’Eriq King played well, completing 18-of-30 passes for 239 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, as well as 53 rushing yards. This season King has 2,573 yards, 22 touchdowns, five interceptions, 520 rushing yards, and five touchdowns on the ground. However, it was the Hurricanes’ defense that was a major letdown, allowing the Tar Heels to run for 554 yards and six touchdowns.
The 21st-ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys (7-3) also boast a high-powered offense just like the Hurricanes. Wide receiver Tylan Wallace is a player to watch and the favorite target of quarterback Spencer Sanders. Wallace has 53 receptions for 877 yards and six touchdowns. In the Cowboys’ last two games, the standout wide receiver has 14 receptions for 221 yards and two touchdowns.
There should be plenty of points available in Orlando, and the notoriously dubious parking lots of Camping World Stadium shouldn’t be so full thanks to fan restrictions on attendance.
