ACC Bowl Projections – Week 14


ACC bowl projections for Week 14 of the 2016 season. Clemson controls its own College Football Playoff destiny heading into the league title game.


With a win over Virginia Tech in the ACC title game, Clemson will be returning to the College Football Playoff.

Deshaun Watson finished with 347 yards and matched the six touchdowns he threw in his first college start against North Carolina in 2014 in an easy win over South Carolina. Because Lamar Jackson and Louisville lost for the second straight week, there is a chance that Watson gained some steam in the Heisman Trophy race.

Meanwhile, Florida State took care of Florida in Tallahassee behind the legs of Dalvin Cook, who rushed for 153 yards on 26 carries in a 31-13 victory on Saturday night. A New Year’s Six Bowl berth is very much in play now for Jimbo Fisher’s squad.
