ACC Bowl Projections – Week 13


ACC bowl projections for Week 13 of the 2016 season. Clemson is set up for a College Football Playoff bid, while Louisville’s loss to Houston knocks the Cardinals out of the race.


Clemson bounced back from its wild loss last week against Pitt to claim a 35-13 win over Wake Forest on Saturday and take home another ACC Atlantic division crown.

Deshaun Watson rushed for two touchdowns and threw for another score, while Wayne Gallman rushed for a season-high 161 yards and two scores in the victory.

The Tigers have a date with rival South Carolina next week before competing in the ACC title game in Orlando the following Saturday.

As was the case last week, Dabo Swinney’s squad is projected to face Michigan in the Fiesta Bowl.
