Bowl Projections for the ACC: Week 5


It’s like we’re a proper football conference, you guys. North Carolina beat Florida State on a 54 yard field goal with no time left, and then Clemson and Louisville blew everyone’s mind with an incredible performance in prime time. The ACC will possibly enter next week with three teams in the top 10, and the Tar Heels will undoubtedly join the top 25 in both polls as well.

Meanwhile, Duke almost single-handedly ruined the “ACC as a football conference” argument by hosting an open basketball practice. Oh, and they also turned the ball over 27 times in a loss against Virginia which all but guarantees that the ACC will not be filling its bowl allotment this year. Thanks a lot, Grayson Allen.
