The league said Friday the Mobile, Ala.-based GMAC Bowl will replace the Humanitarian Bowl in Boise, Idaho, in the conference’s postseason lineup.
The GMAC Bowl will have the ninth pick of eligible ACC teams this year, while the EagleBank Bowl in Washington, D.C., which had the final pick last year, moves up to the No. 8 pick of ACC teams.
The ACC champion once again will play in the Orange Bowl unless it is ranked either first or second in the final BCS standings. In that case, it will play in the BCS title game in Pasadena, Calif.
Well, now we have that cleared up. Honestly, I didn’t even know the ACC was part of the Humanitarian Bowl. Learn something new everyday. On another note, how is GM still sponsoring a bowl game? (GMAC is the financing wing). Aren’t they on the verge of collapse and preparing to file for bankruptcy? Is the bowl game considered an asset that they can sell off? If so who would buy the bowl? Would it be (finally) some business related to college? The Trojan Condom Bowl? The Natty Light Bowl? The Ramen Noodle Bowl? I need answers dammit!
