After FSU got snubbed by the playoff committee, I figured NC State’s Pop-Tart Bowl chances were sunk, but not so! The Wolfpack is indeed headed to Orlando, where it has played a lot of bowl games under a lot of different names, to play Kansas State.
Seems like a decent shot at a 10th win, and it isn’t El Paso (or Jacksonville), so I’ll happily take it.
Here is the complete ACC bowl picture:
I was worried they would be tempted to place State in the Gator Bowl to face Devin Leary but we dodged that nightmare. Having recently played Kentucky in that game probably helped us there.
I'm looking forward to playing K-State, a school with which we don’t share much athletic history. Should be fun.
