2012 bowl projections: Six ACC teams could be headed to postseason

Robert Mayer-US PRESSWIRE

While Boston College has been eliminated from bowl eligibility, the latest SB Nation bowl projections have six ACC members headed to postseason games.

The most recent set of SB Nation bowl projections has six teams from the ACC getting bids to play in a postseason game. The Boston College Eagles, with a 2-7 record, are not in contention anymore, but here are where some of their ACC rivals are projected to be playing in the postseason.

The No. 10 Florida State Seminoles, the current conference leaders, would get the league's BCS berth and appear in the New Year's Day Orange Bowl against BCS at-large selection Louisville Cardinal.

The ACC's projected No. 2 finisher, the Clemson Tigers, could head to the Chick-fil-A Bowl against SEC foe South Carolina. The Miami Hurricanes are projected to finish third in the ACC and square off against Cincinnati in the Russell Athletic Bowl.

The most recent projections have N.C. State finishing fourth in the ACC and taking on the surprising Oregon State Beavers in the Sun Bowl. Projected to finish fifth in the league, the Virginia Tech Hokies would go to the Belk Bowl against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

Duke is already bowl eligible at 6-4 and if they finish sixth in the ACC, they could meet Ole Miss in the Music City Bowl.

If only six teams become eligible for the postseason, the ACC's tie-ins with Independence and Military Bowls would be forgone.
