It looks like warm weather could be in store for WVU fans who go bowling. Per the new ESPN bowl projections, WVU will be facing N.C. State in the Camping World Bowl in Orlando, Florida. The game is scheduled for December 28.

After ten contests between the two universities on the gridiron, each team has five wins. The most recent showdown was a Wolfpack win at Camping World Stadium in December 2010 by a final score of 23-7. This gives N.C. State three straight wins over the Mountaineers.

If this prediction turns out to be true it will be the second consecutive trip to Orland for the Mountaineers. Last season WVU headed to the Russell Athletic Bowl to take on the Miami Hurricanes.

With games left against Texas and Oklahoma, the Mountaineers could improve their bowl situation in a big way. Specifically a win over the Sooners could sweeten the pot when it comes to where the Mountaineers go for bowl season.

As things currently stand it looks like the Mountaineers will have a great chance to head to Florida in December.
