ACC Football 2012 Postseason Bowl Projections: Week Four

Florida State Maintains Its Position As the ACC’s Orange Bowl Representative in This Week’s Bowl Projections

Below is a list of bowl-eligible ACC teams, and which games they’d be headed to. Obviously no team has clinched making or missing the postseason just yet. But I see little reason why that would stop us from making these random predictions based on just a few games’ worth of action. Disagree with any of these? Share your own picks below.

ACC Bowl Projections 2012: Week Four

Discover Orange Bowl: Florida State Seminoles (3-0) vs. BCS at-large

Chick-fil-a Bowl: Clemson Tigers (3-0) vs. SEC

Russell Athletics Bowl: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (2-1) vs. Big East

Hyundai Sun Bowl: Virginia Tech Hokies (2-1) vs. Pac-12

Belk Bowl: NC State Wolfpack (2-1) vs. Big East

Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl: Virginia Cavaliers (2-1) vs. SEC

We also see both Pittsburgh and Syracuse heading to postseason games, going to the BBVA Compass Bowl and Pinstripe Bowl, respectively.

    • Right now, the lineup is:

      1. BCS Orange Bowl in Miami
      2. Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta
      3. Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando
      4. Hyundai Sun Bowl in El Paso
      5. Belk Bowl in Charlotte
      6. Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl in Nashville
      7. AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl in Shreveport
      8. Military Bowl in DC
      9. Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco (conditional)

      However … given that the ACC is effectively moving from 12 bowl teams to 15 (with Notre Dame), and given that Notre Dame is joining the group, it’s likely that some additional games will be added, and the lineup overall may be better in the future. There’s some talk about possibly getting the Gator Bowl back.
