ACC announces 2013 football bowl schedule
The ACC has released the conference's bowl schedule for the 2013 postseason.
The ACC announced dates and times for the nine bowl games in the 2013-14 postseason on Monday, revealing some of the matchups for the final season of the BCS era.
The ACC champion, if not selected for the BCS title game in the Rose Bowl, will play against an at-large selection in the Orange Bowl at 8 p.m. on Jan. 3. The Orange Bowl will continue to serve as the home of the ACC champion into the college football playoff era, but will then feature a representative from the Big Ten, SEC or Notre Dame.
The Chick-fil-A Bowl will once again have the next selection of ACC teams, followed by the Russell Athletic Bowl, Hyundai Sun Bowl, Belk Bowl, Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl, AdvoCareV100 Bowl and finally the Military Bowl.
The ACC also has a conditional ninth bowl agreement with the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl should the Pac-12 or BYU not be able to fulfill its commitment to the bowl game, and the ACC has an available bowl eligible team.
