On Monday, the ACC announced where its top teams will be headed for the final season of BCS system. If the top-ranked team in the conference does not earn a berth in the national championship game, it will be headed to the Orange Bowl against one of the best at-large teams in the nation.
From there, the second- and third-ranked schools in the ACC will be headed to the Chick-fil-A and Russell Athletic Bowls, respectively. Those are followed by the Hyundai Sun Bowl, Belk Bowl, Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl, AdvoCareV100 Bowl, and finally the Military Bowl.
The ACC could also send a team to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, but only if the Pac-12 does not have enough bowl-eligible teams, BYU is either ineligible or off to a bigger bowl, and if the ACC has a ninth team with at least six wins to its credit.
