ACC bowl projections: Week 9
By Andrea Adelson and Heather Dinich
Another week full of surprises in the ACC, but only one real shift in the projections. The league now has five bowl-eligible teams, with Duke included in the mix. Congrats to the Blue Devils for making it to consecutive bowls for the first time in league history.
We put Wake Forest into the projections at the bottom and took out Boston College based on the weekend's results. Boston College has an easier road but has to win three more; we can see Wake Forest pulling out the necessary two wins from its remaining slate.
