I like the ACC’s Tie-In to the Holiday Bowl. That is a well regarded bowl historically, in a good destination location. I would imagine this end up being a Tier 1 bowl for the ACC.
The ACC vs SEC now being a yearly matchup for the Gator I like too.
Remember the Chick Fil A Peach started as an ACC\SEC matchup that grew in stature over time. The Belk Bowl will continue to feature ACC teams in Charlotte which makes perfect sense. Charlotte is the de-facto epi-center of the ACC. Don’t get Georgia Tech fans started on the Belk bowl though…
An ACC team getting in the OutBack in years the Big 10 has a team in the Orange Bowl? Yep that’s good as well.
Don’t think for a minute, that that the improved Bowl Lineup isn’t due to the ACC’s improved football play over the last few years.
Some nice news for ACC Football in the middle of basketball season.
