The Orange Bowl has been played in Miami since its inception in 1935. The game was simply known as the Orange Bowl until 1988. From 1989-2010, it was called the FexEx Orange Bowl and has been the Discover Orange Bowl since that time.

 

The game was played at Miami Field from 1935-1937 before moving to the Miami Orange Bowl from 1938-1996. The game moved to its current location, Sun Life Stadium, in 1997 and every game except the 1999 game has been played at this location since that time. The 1999 game was moved back to Miami Orange Bowl for that season due to the Dolphins hosting a playoff game at Sun Life Stadium on the same day.

 

In the previous 79 editions of the Orange Bowl, the game has hosted 51 different teams. Oklahoma (18) and Nebraska (17) are the only schools with double-digit appearances in the game. The game has also hosted schools from 13 different conferences, led by 42 appearances from the former Big Eight conference. ACC schools (at the time of the game) have appeared in 20 matchups while Big 10 teams (at the time of the game) have made six appearances.

 

Today, TheClemsonInsider.com takes a look back at the great tradition of the Orange Bowl.
