05:56 PM ET 05.06 | The ACC released its postseason bowl schedule for the 2013 season on Monday. This year, there are no games before Christmas, and all of them will be played in the span of a week. The ACC has eight official tie-ins, as well as a conditional tie-in that would send a ninth team if a spot happens to be open. The first game, which is scheduled for Dec. 27, is the Military Bowl; the ACC's bowl slate concludes with the Orange Bowl on Jan. 3.

What's this - an LSU fan who doesn't like the Chick-Fil-A bowl?

Chick-fil-A has heard you. The name will revert to the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl (say that with a mouthful of chick-fil-a sammie). I reckon they didn't want this Bowl sponsorship thing to in any way injure their market-topping net promoter scores.

Another round of meaningless bowl games.

That was a requirement for the bowl to be part of the new College Football Championship Game rotation - the corporate names had to be subordinate to the bowl game name.

They get 8. They deserve no more than 3.

Hey, someone has to fill all of those bowl slots; and someone has to make the BIG 12 and B1G look good.
