ACC Bowl Predictions

The Atlantic Coast Conference has ended the season with nine bowl eligible teams. Out of a conference of fourteen teams that is quality representation. The ACC has plenty of bowl tie ins to go around, and the bowl games are going to attempt to make the most profitable matchups. Let’s not forget that due to an alliance with the ACC Notre Dame will also eat up an ACC Bowl bid. We have the Fighting Irish picked to go out west to the Holiday Bowl. So let’s get to it and show you the ACC Bowl Predictions for these nine teams.

ACC Bowl Predictions

The Orange Bowl: ACC Champion vs. SEC/Big Ten/ND

North Carolina vs. Tennessee 

Gator Bowl: ACC vs. SEC

Clemson vs. South Carolina 

Cheez-It-Bowl: ACC vs. Big 12

Florida State vs. Texas

Sun Bowl: ACC vs. PAC 10

Duke vs. UCLA

Dukes Mayo Bowl: ACC vs Big 10

North Carolina State vs. Purdue

Pinstripe Bowl: ACC vs. Big 10

 Wake Forest vs. Maryland

Military Bowl: ACC vs AAC

Louisville vs. ECU

Fenway: ACC vs. AAC

Pitt vs. Memphis

Gasparilla Bowl

Syracuse vs. UCONN

Yes, I am probably the only person in America that is selecting North Carolina to make the Orange Bowl. Even those inside of Chapel Hill are giving the Tar Heels a slim chance in the ACC Championship game. The conference already took a blow with South Carolina defeating Clemson, I have a feeling it will take a bigger one with UNC beating Clemson this weekend. I do think the Gator Bowl will have an opportunity to capitalize, making a rematch between Clemson and South Carolina.

The Cheez-It Bowl could also hit a homerun hosting brands such as Florida State and Texas. We have to remember these bowl games are trying to see revenue, and will do the best they can at that. A UNC upset over Clemson could cause a major shakeup.
