Now that we’ve detailed each team’s 2012 season, we can take a look at where they’ll be headed for the postseason. While we’re still a full two seasons away from the long-awaited college football playoff, it’s still fun to see your team picked for a bowl game (and will be once the four-team playoff comes into effect).
Below is a list of bowl-eligible ACC teams, and which games they’d be headed to. Keep in mind that while we’ve projected North Carolina to reach the requisite six wins, they have a postseason ban this year, and will not be allowed to partake in a bowl game. Disagree with any of these? Share your own picks below.
ACC Bowl Projections, Preseason 2012
Discover Orange Bowl: Florida State Seminoles (12-1) vs. BCS at-large
Chick-fil-a Bowl: Clemson Tigers (10-2) vs. SEC

Additionally, Pittsburgh (8-4) and Syracuse (6-6) are projected to be bowl eligible as well. We’ve slated Pitt to be selected to play against Georgia Tech in the Belk Bowl. Syracuse, on the other hand, is on track to head to the Beef O’Brady’s Bowl.
We’ll be updating these each week, so be sure to check back throughout the season.
