On the even of bowl selection day, here’s my guess at how the ACC tie-in bowls will go Sunday (pending Clemson win in the ACC title game)
Orange Bowl: Florida State
Russell Athletic: Miami
Belk: Virginia Tech
Sun: North Carolina
TaxSlayer: Georgia Tech
Military: N.C. State
Independence: Wake Forest
Quick Lane: Boston College
As reported earlier, I think the TaxSlayer (née Gator) would be quite happy with either Miami or Georgia Tech , and if Miami gets nabbed by the Russell Athletic, the TaxSlayer folks can list the Yellow Jackets as their No. 1 choice and be assured of getting them.
Should Georgia Tech get invited to the Dec. 31 game in Jacksonville, Fla., a likely opponent would be Kentucky.
If Virginia Tech should win, it's a bit murkier. My guess would be Georgia Tech ends up at the Military Bowl in Annapolis, Md.
