ACC Bowl Projections – Week 6


ACC bowl projections for Week 6 of the 2016 season. UNC notches a huge road win over FSU, while Clemson knocks off Louisville.


What a day it was in the ACC.

Late in the afternoon on Saturday, UNC stunned FSU with a Nick Weiler game-winning 55-yard field goal as time expired, dropping the Seminoles to 0-2 in conference play. Then, in the evening, Clemson survived a furious Louisville rally sparked by Lamar Jackson.

The Tigers look poised to make the College Football Playoff, but it’s hard to argue that Louisville is not one of the four best teams in the country.
