From Heather Dinich of ESPN:

In your mind, who would be the ideal opponents [Orange Bowl] for the ACC?

John Swofford: I think it could go several different directions as we talk through this. Anything specific I would say would be premature. One thing is certain, and that is, we will end up with a quality opponent on a prestigious day in a terrific bowl.

Would you go so far as to say which conference or conferences you would like to align with?

JS: It could be a conference, it could be multiple conferences, it could be considerably broader than that. We’ll just have to see as we continue the discussions on the possibilities.

What about specifically Notre Dame? Is that a possibility?

JS:I think it’s likely Notre Dame could be involved in the mix.

How much revenue do you think you could possibly generate from this?

JS: It’s hard to tell until we go to the marketplace, but it certainly has excellent value, as does the entire system that has been developed. One of the real pluses here for the ACC from a financial standpoint is that this game is a contract game, and therefore the revenue from it will largely benefit the ACC.
