Bowl records by conference

Yes, the ACC needs to fare better in its bowl games and is looking for its first winning bowl record since 2006. But the big picture shows it's not all that bad. Heading into bowl season, the ACC ranks third among FBS conferences in bowl victories (156) and appearances (305). Despite a 4-5 mark in 2010, ACC teams are a combined 156-144-5 (.519) in bowl play. Since becoming a 12-team league in 2005, the ACC has sent 50 teams to bowl games; only the SEC has had more (52). Here is complete data, courtesy of the ACC:
