"Our top priority is to make sure we get that 10th bowl [commitment] and then we obviously can allow the bowls to make the selections they need and selections that make sense for our schools. With this economy, it looks like the bowls will also want to be sure that the selections make sense regionally as well. That's where D.C. or Charlotte makes potentially good sense for State."

- Michael Kelly, the ACC's associate commissioner for football

J.P. Giglio * News & Observer
N.C. State fans have a new favorite team — Troy — at least for one week. The Trojans (7-4) could be the key to State finding a bowl home. An NCAA rule (page 9), could keep State out of the ACC bowl lineup. That puts the Wolfpack (6-6) in the at-large pool. Under NCAA rules, a 6-6 team cannot fill an at-large bowl bid before a 7-5 (or better) team. Doing the conference bowl-eligible teams/conference tie-ins math (see chart), there are possibly four bowls, and five slots, open for at-large invitations. Read More

At least one of the two teams will go to an ACC-affiliated game; the other would need to land a spot that another league will fail to fill in its contracts. The best bet for that would be in the Texas Bowl in Houston or the Independence Bowl in Shreveport, La. Read More
