ORLANDO, Fla. — No. 18 Miami is headed to Orlando to play in the Cheez-It Bowl.

The Hurricanes (8-2, No. 18 College Football Playoff) will face Oklahoma State (7-3, No. 21 CFP) on Dec. 29 at Camping World Stadium.

Orlando has become a regular destination for the Hurricanes in recent years. Miami has played in the Orlando bowl game three times since 2009.

Miami's lone bowl win since 2006 was a 31-14 victory over West Virginia in the 2016 Russell Athletic Bowl.

The Hurricanes defeated Oklahoma State in their only other meeting -- a 40-3 victory in 1991.

They'll face the Cowboys without arguably Oklahoma State's best player. Running back Chuba Hubbard opted out earlier this month to prepare for the NFL draft.
