Bowl eligibility in the ACC is locked up for five teams: Florida State, Clemson, Louisville, Duke and Georgia Tech. Boston College and Miami need just one more win to get in, and we like their chances. Wake Forest needs to win out, which seems unlikely. That leaves six teams still on the fence.
With a number of matchups between 3-5 and 4-4 teams on the docket this week, we should have more clarity in five days, but for now, here’s what we’ve got:
College Football Playoff: Florida State
Capital One Orange Bowl: Clemson vs. Notre Dame*
Russell Athletic Bowl: Duke
Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl: Louisville
Belk Bowl: Georgia Tech
Hyundai Sun Bowl: Miami
New Era Pinstripe Bowl: Boston College
Military Bowl presented By Northrop Grumman: Virginia
Duck Commander Independence Bowl: Virginia Tech
Quick Lane Bowl: North Carolina
Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl: NC State
* Note: If Notre Dame is not invited to the College Football Playoff or a New Year’s Six bowl game, it will assume one of the ACC’s bowl spots.
