West Virginia will play in the Champs Sports Bowl on Dec. 28 in Orlando, Fla., multiple sources confirmed to the Post-Gazette this afternoon.

The Mountaineers (9-3) will most likely face North Carolina State (8-4) in the game played at the Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium.

An official announcement will be made at 8:30 p.m. tonight.

The spot became solidified when Notre Dame was passed over by Champs Sports Bowl representatives, who have a contract that stipulates they can select a seven-win Irish squad instead of a Big East representative one time during a four-year span, with this being the first season of that window.

Notre Dame will now head to the Sun Bowl, where they will most likely face Miami.
