Per Joe Schadd's twitter the ACC and Orange Bowl have reached an extension agreement. It will run 12 years, like all other bowl contracts. It locks the ACC champ into playing at the Orange Bowl unless the champ makes the playoffs or the Orange Bowl is a semifinal site. If the Orange Bowl doesn't host a semifinal game but the ACC champ makes the playoffs then the Orange Bowl is required to pick an ACC team to play in it. If the Orange Bowl hosts a semifinal game the release says one of the other Big 6 bowls has to pick up the ACC champ. Cements the ACC as one of the 5 AQ leagues even if the commissioners want to play verbal judo. My gut reaction, this is a big deal for the ACC. If we get our stuff together and FSU makes the playoffs on some sort of consistent basis this means at least 2 big bowl paydays for the conference. Even an outside chance that Clemson, Va Tech and FSU could all make Big 6 bowls. *edit* Added official release from Orange Bowl
