This is Miami's first Orange Bowl appearance since 2004. Miami started 10-0 but has lost its last two games, while Wisconsin lost to Ohio State for the Big Ten championship after winning its first 12 games. Something has to give.

Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium. Tickets are still available.

The Miami Dolphins (6-8) will try to end Buffalo's playoff hopes when they host the Bills in the final game of the season.

Buffalo (8-7) needs to win, and then will need a little help, to claim a wild-card berth in the playoffs.

Originally slated for 1 p.m. Sunday, kickoff was moved to 4:30 p.m. at Hard Rock Stadium.
