ACC bowl performance caps disappointing season

What an ugly loss for Virginia Tech Monday night in the Orange Bowl, a 40-12 drubbing at the hands of Stanford. That loss put the ACC at 4-4 in bowls this season, with Boston College still to play Nevada in San Francisco's Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl (huh?) on Jan. 9 (what? Isn't that time for spring football?).

So how often can we say N.C. State and North Carolina came through for the league in football? But this year, that's the way it played out, with those schools getting wins while the rest of the ACC largely floundered.

Florida State beat South Carolina 26-17 in the Chick-fil-A
N.C. State trounced West Virginia 23-7 in the Champs
UNC topped Tennessee 30-27 in double overtime in the Music City
Maryland routed East Carolina 51-20 in the Military

Virginia Tech lost to Stanford 40-12 in the Orange
Clemson lost to South Florida 31-26 in the Meineke
Georgia Tech lost to Air Force 14-7 in the Independence
Miami lost to Notre Dame 33-17 in the Sun

Overall, it was a mediocre end to a disappointing ACC season. Hey, at least we have Wake Forest basketball ...

  1. For every successful business operating in Boston, network support invariably becomes an issue at some point. Being hooked up to the World Wide Web, or Internet, is one thing; however, chances are that when it comes to the day-to-day operations of the company, the Intranet is just as important.
