2012 Sugar Bowl Preview: Michigan Vs. Virginia Tech

After Monday's college football bowl bonanza the action continues Tuesday night with the Sugar Bowl match-up between Michigan (10-2, ranked No. 13) and Virginia Tech (11-2, ranked No. 17) at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.

In an exhaustive, comprehensive preview of the game, SB Nation's Bill Connelly calls this one a "wonderfully even match-up."

Connelly adds:

The level of quality may not be as high as yesterday's Rose and Fiesta Bowls, but the finish could be just as tight. As justifiably negative as the reaction was to Virginia Tech's selection for the Sugar Bowl over both Boise State and Kansas State, the matchups here are still intriguing.

Virginia Tech fans can join in the discussion with Hokies fans at SB Nation's Gobbler Country. Michigan fans will want to join the discussion at SB Nation's Maize N Brew. You can see coverage of all the college football action at SB Nation's College Football Hub Page.
