2016 Week 1 ACC Bowl Projections

ACC Week 1 Rankings

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.
