ACC Bowl Projections for November 7, 2011

Did those ACC Bowl predictions change since last week? A bowl eligible Wake Forest, North Carolina, or NC State may not make the cut, unless another spot open elsewhere. So who gets left out?

Advocare V100 Independence Bowl
December 26, 2011  Shreveport, LA, 5:00 pm ESPN
Mountain West No. 3 vs. ACC No. 7
Projection: Wyoming vs. Miami

I’m leaving Miami here for the moment, but a win over Florida St. could have those two schools swapping bowl positions.

Belk BowlDecember 27, 2011  Charlotte, NC, 8:00 pm ESPN
Big East No. 3 vs. ACC No. 4 
Projection: Louisville vs. North Carolina St.

If NC State can win 2 of their last 3, the Belk Bowl takes a North Carolina school they so desperately  want.

Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman
December 28, 2011  Washington, DC, 4:30 pm ESPN
ACC No. 8 vs. Navy (or C-USA if Navy not eligible)
Projection: North Carolina vs. Marshall

At least it’s not a long trip for Carolina fans to make.

Champs Sports Bowl
December 29, 2011 Orlando, FL, 5:30 pm ESPN
ACC No. 3 vs. Big East No. 2 
Projection: Florida State vs. Notre Dame 

The Champs is so hoping they can get this matchup.

Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl
December 30, 2011   Nashville, TN, 6:40 pm ESPN
ACC No. 6 vs. SEC No. 7 

Projection: Virginia vs Tennessee

Virginia continues to impress. Three SEC schools are fighting it out for this spot Kentucky, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt. The Vols get the nod if all other things are equal.

Hyundai Sun Bowl

December 31, 2011  El Paso, TX, 2:00 pm CBS
ACC No. 4 vs. Pac-12 No. 4 
Projection: Georgia Tech vs UCLA

UCLA made this game even more attractive after defeating a good Arizona St. team. Georgia Tech looks locked in here unless they reach the Orange Bowl.

Chick-fil-A Bowl
December 31, 2011 Atlanta, GA, 7:30 pm
This ACC\SEC Showdown still looks like a good possibility. ESPN
ACC No. 2 vs. SEC No. 3, 4 or 5 
Projection: Virginia Tech vs. Auburn

Discover Orange Bowl
January 4, 2012  Miami Gardens, FL, 8:00 pm ESPN
ACC No. 1 vs. BCS at-large 
Projection: Clemson vs. Cincinnati

Cincinnati looks likes the Big East representative to face the best Clemson team in 20 years.
