The ACC is making progress, and J.P. Giglio of the Raleigh News & Observer has proof:
While the SEC won its third straight national title, the ACC can claim more wins (17) against teams from the Bowl Championship Series than the SEC or any of the other major conferences during the 2008 season.
Well, the ACC also played more games against BCS opponents, but hey, kudos for scheduling the big boys (and Notre Dame). A losing record against the Big East and Pac-10 isn't anything to brag about, but at least it was better than the Big Ten's season.
Check back tomorrow for more on the state of the ACC and its bowl season in particular.
