The 2016 Capital One Orange Bowl kicks off tonight in Florida with the Michigan Wolverines vs Florida State Spartans on ESPN Sports TV. This game might feel a little like a consolation prize for two schools who had aspirations of making the College Football Playoff earlier in the season.

Michigan (6) comes in as the favorite against FSU following another year of stellar defense under coach Jim Harbaugh. They were the second best team in the nation in points against (12.5 points) and yards against (252.7 yards).
Earlier in the season Michigan appeared to be unbeatable, blowing out opponents left and right with dominant play on both sides of the ball. An overtime loss to Ohio State dashed their hopes.
Florida State (11) has been porous on defense at times this year. Offensively they’ve been a machine with running back Dalvin Cook leading the way.
Cook will be playing tonight in the Orange Bowl despite his fellow highly rated running backs expecting to go pro, Leonard Fournette and Christian McCaffrey, opting to pass on their Bowl games.
