Bowl records by conference, 2016-17 season: ACC steps up in a major way

With all 40 bowls having now been played, here is a look at how each conference performed this bowl season.
|Independent||2-0||2-0||BYU and Army won close games.|
|ACC||8-3||6-5||Better than expected and Clemson will play for the national championship for a second year in a row.|
|Big 12||4-2||1-5||The worst of the major conferences in the regular season and little was expected in the postseason, but the Big 12 did very well.|
|Sun Belt||4-2||1-5||Appalachian State is now 2-0 all time in bowl games.|
|C-USA||4-3||5-2||Both league title game participants were among the winners.|
|MWC||4-3||4-3||Nice year for the league, highlighted by San Diego State over Houston.|
|SEC||6-6||7-5||The league performed about to expectation and Alabama will be playing for another national championship.|
|Pac-12||3-3||5-1||League champion Washington was the only underdog in what turned out to be a somewhat disappointing postseason.|
|American||2-5||5-2||The American had some good matchups but struggled to take advantage of them.|
|Big Ten||3-7||3-7||The league wasn't expected to win much, and it didn't. The East division going 0-5 was especially disappointing.|
|MAC||0-6||1-5||Miami (Ohio) was a blocked kick from winning, and Western Michigan acquitted itself well against Wisconsin. Unfortunately, moral victories were all they got.|
