The ACC is enjoying a bowl season for the ages.
The ACC had four games each against the SEC and Big Ten, the two conferences many believed to be better throughout the course of 2016. The ACC went 3-1 against both. Overall? The ACC is 9-4 against the SEC (its best mark ever) and 6-2 against the Big Ten -- including a perfect 5-0 against the Big Ten East (you know, the division considered the best in college football).
How does FSU rank among the New Year’s 6 teams now that all the bowls have been played?
The Seminoles provided the second-most-entertaining game of the postseason with their 33-32 win over Michigan in the Orange Bowl. The Seminoles' win should make up for a "down" 9-3 regular season and propel them toward another run at the ACC title next year.
