2016 ACC Week 3 Bowl Projections


Here are the College Football News Week 3 predictions and bowl projections, looking where the ACC teams will go.


2016 Week 3 ACC Bowl Projections

– 2016-2017 College Football Conference Bowl Tie-Ins.

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. Here’s the big problem, though – there aren’t going to be enough teams for all the slots.

Notre Dame might be out of the CFP hunt, but it can take any ACC bowl slot as long as it’s within one game record-wise of the conference team that would be the one to go standings-wise. With the Big Ten projected to go to the Orange Bowl, the ACC gets a spot in the Buffalo Wild Wings, too.
