ACC Football 2012 Postseason Bowl Projections: Week Six

At 4-1, Duke is Positioned Very Well to Make Their First Bowl Game Since 1994

Below is a list of bowl-eligible ACC teams, and which games they’d be headed to. No team has clinched making or missing the postseason just yet, but I see little reason why that would stop us from making these random predictions based on four or five games.

  1. I’m sold on Duke as a bowl team, but I think they’ll fall further in the pecking order. Even if it’s the first in more than 15 years, Duke still won’t put butts in the seats or pull eyeballs to the TV. While the Blue Devils might deserve a higher slot, unless they end up with a truly special season (i.e. top 25) I think Wake is the only team they might be picked before.

    • That’s why I went with the Belk Bowl, however. Charlotte game, so there’s actually a shot they’ll bring fans along with them. I just feel like it’s a smart move all around. No point sending the Blue Devils out of state and fail to sell their allotment.
