08:18 AM ET 09.18 | The Atlantic Coast Conference may be on the verge of shaking up its postseason, too. The [ACC] and Orange Bowl are finalizing a deal that would pit the ACC champion against either Notre Dame, an SEC or Big Ten team starting after the 2014 regular season, sources told ESPN. The ACC champion, or another team from the conference if its champion qualifies for the national semifinals, will play annually in the Orange Bowl. How the ACC's opponent will be selected from Notre Dame, the SEC or Big Ten is still being determined. The ACC and Orange Bowl would have the opportunity to take Notre Dame, if it doesn't make the national semifinals; an SEC team not in the national semifinals or Champions Bowl; or a Big Ten team not in the semifinals or Rose Bowl.

ACC vs ND in the Orange Bowl. That's almost like having two ACC teams playing.

No kidding. Not only did they get the keys to car, they got full title.

ACC is definitely on its knees in front of the domers

Are you implying that there is such thing as a good redneck bar?

That hurt like hell when I got tackled.

All these bowl agreements are going to be hard to figure out once all that playoff stuff kicks in.
