ACC favors Russell Athletic Bowl
According to Brett McMurphy of ESPN, the Russell Athletic Bowl has been reported to be the new top landing spot for the ACC teams after the playoff and the Orange Bowl.
The ACC spring meetings began on Monday.
The Russell Athletic Bowl is the leading candidate to get the ACC's second team in the league's new bowl lineup beginning in 2014, sources said.
The ACC's top team is slotted to the Discover Orange Bowl in years when the Orange Bowl is not part of the new College Football Playoff.
Two weeks ago, conference and bowl officials met in Charlotte. At the meeting, it appeared the Taxslayer.com Gator, Belk and American Mortgage Music City bowls would share the ACC's top bowl pick after the Orange Bowl, industry sources said. Each of those three bowls would play an SEC opponent, a source said.
However, the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando has surged to the ACC's top spot after any ACC teams advance to the College Football Playoff and the Orange Bowl, a source said.
