The 2013 college football bowl season is officially underway, and the ACC is sending a record 11 teams to bowl games this year, including the BCS National Championship game featuring the Florida State Seminoles and Auburn Tigers.
The ACC is pitted against neighboring rival SEC in three games, including that BCS championship game, with the No. 24 Duke Blue Devils taking on the No. 21 Texas A&M Aggies in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, and our own Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets meeting the Ole Miss Rebels in the Music City Bowl.
With 11 teams playing in bowls, the ACC has a chance to set even more records for wins in bowl games, as well as winning percentage for a conference. So will it happen? Could we hear the vaunted cheers of A-C-C! A-C-C! when all is said and done after this bowl season?
It could happen. There are a lot of favorable matchups, and the conference has a lot of quality teams playing in bowls.
The folks here at YellowJackedUp.com put their heads together to make their picks for all the games featuring ACC teams, so take a look at the list and let us know what you think. As much as we’d like to pick our conference to win every game, it’s just not realistic, but that doesn’t mean don’t believe that we could win them all.
