The Orange Bowl is an annual college football game that is usually played on January 1 in Miami, Florida. The game was played at the Orange Bowl Stadium from 1935 to 1995, and was moved to Dolphins Stadium in 1996. The corporate title sponsor has been FedEx (formerly Federal Express) since 1989 and the official title of the game is the FedEx Orange Bowl.

From 1968, the game featured the champion of the former Big Eight Conference (whose members formed the basis of the current Big 12 Conference). Since 1998, however, with the creation of the Bowl Championship Series system, team selection for the Orange Bowl is now tied into the other three BCS Bowls. As one of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) bowl games (the others being the Sugar, Fiesta, and Rose Bowls), the Orange Bowl hosts the national championship game once every four years under the BCS system (as it did January 4, 2005).
