ACC bowl projections: Week 8

Given the way the middle of the league has played, doing bowl projections is almost like throwing darts blindfolded. We are making our best guesses here at the teams that will end the season bowl eligible, based on their performance to date and projections for the final weeks of the season. Essentially, we have tried to predict every contest until the final regular-season game.

Having said that, we believe the ACC will have more bowl eligible teams than available slots. Here is how we see everything lining up. For this week, anyway.
