A pair of teams with College Football Playoff aspirations for much of the season - and that saw those hopes end with losses in conference championship games - will meet on Dec. 30 at Hard Rock Stadium, the Hurricanes' home field.

No. 11 Miami (10-2, No. 10 CFP) is going to the Orange for the 10th time. The Hurricanes earned the berth after ending as the highest-ranked Atlantic Coast Conference team that did not make the CFP field. It's the first Orange Bowl for No. 6 Wisconsin (12-1, No. 6 CFP), which saw its undefeated season end Saturday in a loss to Ohio State at the Big Ten title game.

That defeat almost certainly kept Wisconsin out of the four-team CFP field. Miami still may have been in the title mix if it beat No. 1 Clemson in the ACC title game, but the Hurricanes were overwhelmed 38-3.

Miami coach Mark Richt said going to the Orange Bowl is going to be ''a wonderful opportunity'' for the Hurricanes, who won 10 games this year for the first time since 2003 - which, ironically, was the last season in which Miami went to the Orange Bowl.

''One of the classic bowl games in America,'' Richt said.

The Hurricanes and Badgers haven't played in eight years, and that was at the Champs Sports Bowl. Both have strong defenses, with Wisconsin's ranking No. 1 nationally in yards allowed in No. 2 in points allowed.

And even though the Badgers missed the CFP, players say sending the seniors out winners will remain a priority.

''They deserve to go out with a win,'' Badgers offensive lineman Michael Deiter said. ''The things they've done for this program and this football team, they deserve to go out and win a bowl game and go out the right way.''

Miami is just the third team to go to the Orange Bowl while on a two-game losing streak. The others were both LSU teams, in the 1943 and 1973 seasons.

''It's a home game,'' Miami receiver Braxton Berrios said. ''I think that will be really exciting for the team.''

Here's some of what to know about the Orange Bowl matchup:

HOME, SORT OF: Miami was 7-0 at home this season, this game is played in its home stadium and the Hurricanes will be the designated home team for the game. But it will technically be called a neutral-site game, and the Hurricanes likely won't get to use their usual locker room. Past ''home'' teams for the Orange Bowl have used the Miami Dolphins' locker room on game night.

Ohio State can break College Football Playoff again — with Bama's help

  Ohio State can break College Football Playoff again — with Bama's help Ohio State in the College Football Playoff again? Here's the breakdown of how the Buckeyes could sneak back in after the last two weeks.With two weeks to go until the College Football Playoff pairings are finalized, it might seem impossible for Ohio State to claim one of those coveted final four spots, given the Buckeyes are ranked No. 9 in the Week 13 rankings. But there's a plausible scenario that makes such an outcome possible.

Miami vs. Wisconsin : No. 6 Wisconsin faces No. 11 Miami in the Orange Bowl in one of the most highly anticipated matchups this bowl season. Mark Richt and

“We knew we had what it takes to win this game.” Jonathan Taylor finished his record-setting freshman season with 130 rushing yards on 26 carries for Travis Homer and Deejay Dallas had rushing scores for Miami , which was in the Orange Bowl for the 10th time and lost on its home field for the first time

UNCOMMON OPPONENTS: There's no common opponent between Wisconsin and Miami this season, and it's only the fifth time that the Badgers and Hurricanes will meet. They've split four previous matchups.

BADGERS CHASING HISTORY: Wisconsin gets a second chance at recording win No. 13, which would be a single-season record at a school that started playing football in 1889. Wisconsin was 12-1 in 2006, the first year that former coach Bret Bielema was running things in Madison.

ORANGE SUCCESS: Miami is 6-3 in previous trips to the Orange Bowl, with the Hurricanes' last time in South Florida's showcase bowl game coming when they topped Florida State 16-14 on Jan. 1, 2004.

FAMILIAR GROUND: Wisconsin has nine players from the state of Florida, including five from the Miami area and one - wide receiver Paul Jackson, who hasn't recorded any stats this season - who lists Miami Gardens as his hometown. Miami Gardens is the city where Hard Rock Stadium is located. There are no Wisconsin natives on the Miami roster.
