The Big East may dissolve football, with the new playoff structure the bowl games will probably be moved around. So if I could redo the bowl selection for the ACC, with the knowledge that the ACC will have 14 or 16 members, plus Notre Dame taking a bowl tie in, this is how I’d like to see it:

Assuming nobody in the ACC makes the playoff.

1 Orange - ACC winner vs SEC / B1G / Notre Dame

2 CFA - ACC runner up vs SEC

3a Belk - 2nd place Coastal vs 3rd place Atlantic / Notre Dame

3b Russell - 2nd place Atlantic vs 3rd place Coastal / Notre Dame

5a Pin Stripe - Best remaining Northern school ND vs B1G

5b Gator - Best remaining Southern school / ND vs Big12

7 Sun - ACC #9 vs PAC12 / BYU

8 Music City - ACC #10 vs SEC

9 Independence - ACC #11 vs C-USA / MWC / BYU

10 Military - ACC #12 vs Army / Navy / Air Force

I have 12 bowl tie ins with the ACC taking what used to belong to the Big East. The ACC is not going to play very many cross division games, so instead of hitching up with another conference in the Belk and Russel bowl, let’s just play 2 cross division game and keep the pay out within the conference. I can’t imagine that the Belk and Russel bowls having a problem with that.

Interesting…

You like to come up with off the wall scenarios huh?

Essentially your bowl games would be a 9th conference game in some instances.

I’m confused.  There are only 10 bowls listed yet the 12th place ACC team is in the 10th bowl?  Where are #7 and #8?

The Belk and Russell bowl is Atlantic vs Coastal, rather than ACC vs whoever (not Big East anymore).

This gives the ACC a total of 12 bowl tie ins which they will probably need if or when they expand to 14 and 16 members, plus Notre Dame.
