    A win in the Orange Bowl is at the top of Jimbo Fisher's holiday wish list.

    The Florida State football team will face a tough task making it come true against an opponent that was in the thick of the College Football Playoff picture for much of the season.

    After losses to Louisville, North Carolina and Clemson, Fisher's team took advantage of its weak schedule in November, and will finish the season in a New Year's six bowl game for the fifth straight season.

    "To keep that streak alive is tremendous and a testament to this team," Fisher said during a conference call Sunday. patriots super bowl jersey "I'm as proud of this team cheap world cup jerseys because of the character they showed."

    Michigan is left on the outside looking in as No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Washington will play at the Peach Bowl in Atlanta, while No. 2 cheap jerseys Clemson and No. 3 Ohio State head to the Fiesta Bowl on Dec. 31. The national championship game will be played in Tampa on Jan. 9.

    "I have great respect for him," Fisher said of Harbaugh, who he has bumped into on occasion while recruiting last year. "He's done a great job everywhere he's been."

    Fisher, who is ranked fifth nationally making $5.25 million, could be in line for another raise after turning down an offer for LSU's coaching job before the season finale against Florida.

    FSU is riding a four game win streak in November, and finished the season ahead of Louisville in the rankings, despite a blowout 63 20 loss to the Cardinals in September.

    Louisville, led by Heisman Trophy favorite quarterback Lamar Jackson, lost to Clemson in October, and finished the season with losses to Houston and Kentucky in the last two weeks, opening the window for the Seminoles.

    "It's going to be a great reward," Fisher said. "We look forward to carrying the torch for the ACC and performing well."

    Florida State will appear in its 10th Orange Bowl game, the most of any other bowl in program history, while tying Nebraska's NCAA record in its 35th consecutive bowl game. FSU is 4 5 all time at the Orange Bowl.

    FSU's last trip to the Orange Bowl resulted in a win against Northern Illinois in 2012 that propelled the Seminoles to a title run in 2013.

    The Seminoles hope to avenge losses to Oregon in the 2014 Rose Bowl and Houston in the 2015 Peach Bowl, and avoid becoming the first team in school history to lose three football jerseys wholesale straight bowl games.

    "We know we're not in the ACC championship or the national championship," quarterback Deondre Francois said, "but to play in a New Year's Six Bowl is good for our program, good for our recruiting, and just good for the guys to get out of Tallahassee and enjoy a bowl game after all the hard work we put in throughout the season."
