I was could see the ACC going 7-3 as good as 3-7. Worse odds are on Wake with there inability to stop the run and A&M's strength in the run. VT could be a toss up, but if I had to pick a favorite I would choose Maryland in that game. UCLA and coach Kelly have to much time to prepare for the puppies wounded defense. BC matches up well against ECU even though they are trending in opposite directions. Louisville's speed might be the difference in the game with Air Force, especially at the QB position. I think we will pound away on Iowa State and there offense has been pretty bad this year. Even if BV is gone our defense will be amped up. I think Pitt can throw it all over the yard on MSU. Same for UVA against SMU, and Miami VS Wash St. UNC plays there game with Sam Howell they out score USCjr.
I think all the Wake, State and Clemson players would have preferred the trip out West plus the Holiday Bowl pays out the most money of any of the ACC Bowl games and playing UCLA is cooler than playing Iowa State.
