Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich
Well, here's the last round of bowl predictions for the ACC games. It's winding down, as the ACC will wrap things up on New Year's Day with the Konica Minolta Gator Bowl and the FedEx Orange Bowl. Here's the forecast:
GATOR: Clemson 31, Nebraska 28. With the coaching drama finally behind them, the Tigers can concentrate on football, and are out to prove they deserve their spot in this bowl game. Clemson leads the ACC in passing offense and scoring defense.
ORANGE: Cincinnati 17, Virginia Tech 14. The Hokies will struggle without starters Nick Marshman, Jason Worilds and Brett Warren, and quarterback Tyrod Taylor will face a Cincinnati defense that leads the Big East with 2.85 sacks per game.
