From Heather Dinich of ESPN:

Discover Orange Bowl: West Virginia vs. Clemson, Jan., 4, 8 p.m.

Clemson has only played four games against current Big East teams, going 1-3 in those games. But the win came against West Virginia back in 1989, before the formation of the Big East. That year, the Tigers beat the Mountaineers 27-7 in the Gator Bowl in the only meeting ever between these teams.

West Virginia, on the other hand, is well accustomed to playing against teams currently in the ACC. In fact, the Mountaineers are an even 97-97-5 against current ACC teams, including a win over Maryland earlier this season. Of course, many of those games were against Boston College, Miami and Virginia Tech when they were members of the Big East.

Turnovers often tell the story of a game and that’s been true for Clemson this season. In their 10 wins, the Tigers have forced 20 turnovers. In their three losses, they’ve forced a grand total of two.

Entering this bowl season, the ACC was 2-11 all time in BCS bowl games, by far the worst among all AQ conferences. The Big East is 6-7.
