A look at SU Football's future? ACC announces 2013 bowl lineup

The Syracuse Orange 2013 Football season may be another three and a half months away but it's never too early to look at the post season.


Well, for fans who love to look ahead, the ACC announced its 2013 bowl schedule today. FBS teams need at least six wins to qualify for a bowl game, and while SU's schedule is very challenging getting to that mark is in no way out of the question. In a lot of ways, it's rather likely.

So with that said, here's a look at the possible destinations for where the Orange could land in the postseason:

(Bowls listed in chronological order)

Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman

Friday, Dec. 27, 2013 2:30 p.m. ESPN

Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl (conditional)

Friday, Dec. 27, 2013 9:30 p.m. ESPN

Russell Athletic Bowl

Belk Bowl

AdvoCare V100 Bowl

Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2013 12:30 p.m. ESPN

Hyundai Sun Bowl

Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2013 2 p.m. CBS

Chick-fil-A Bowl

Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2013 8 p.m. ESPN

Discover Orange Bowl

Friday, Jan. 3, 2014 8 p.m. ESPN

The ACC Champion lands a spot in the Orange Bowl while the 2nd place team will end up in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

The Russell Athletic and Sun Bowl get the 3rd and 4th pick of ACC teams respectively.

While the Belk and Music City select 5th and 6th in the "draft" order for teams.

You get the idea here with so many destinations and the Independence and Military Bowls getting the final selections of ACC bowl eligible teams.

If the ACC has a 9th eligible team, that squad has a chance at the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, if the Pac-12 or BYU is unable to fill its obligation to the game.
