Eight guaranteed bowl slots, starting with the Dec. 27 Military Bowl, highlight the Atlantic Coast Conference's 2013 postseason schedule released Monday.
The ACC bowl schedule culminates with the Jan. 3 Discover Orange Bowl. The ACC champion, if it's not in the Vizio BCS National Championship Game played at the Rose Bowl, will play in the Discover game at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens,
Fla. and be nationally televised by ESPN.
The Discover Orange Bowl has the first choice of teams which qualified for the BCS after the five conference champions and/or their replacements, have been placed.
The selection order for the other ACC bowls are the Russell Athletic Bowl, the
Hyundai Sun Bowl, the Belk Bowl, the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl,
the AdvoCare V100 Bowl and the Military Bowl.
The ACC also has a conditional bowl agreement with the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl should either the Pac-12 or BYU not be able to fulfill its commitment to the bowl game, and the ACC has an available, bowl-eligible team. The Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl will be played on Friday, Dec. 27, with a 9:30 p.m. kickoff.
