Where are all the ACC teams going this post-season? What bowls are their destiny? Here are the College Football News Week 1 predictions and bowl projections, looking where the ACC teams will go.
2016 Week 1 ACC Bowl Projections
The ACC gets a team into the Orange Bowl, even if it has a team going to the College Football Playoff. It also has a few bowl tie-ins depending on what the Big Ten ends up doing. However, overall this is the toughest conference to figure out.
Let’s put it this way – the ACC Atlantic champ will go to the College Football Playoff.
Notre Dame can take any ACC bowl slot as long as it’s within one game record-wise of the conference team that would be the right fit.
