The Clemson football team will take on Ohio State in the Playstation Fiesta Bowl, but what about the rest of the ACC?

The Clemson football team clinched its fifth-straight berth in the CFB Playoff Sunday afternoon when the committee announced the Tigers as the No. 3 team in the nation.

Clemson will take on the Ohio State Buckeyes in the Playstation Fiesta Bowl in the semifinals. If the Tigers win, they’ll head to New Orleans to take on the winner of LSU-Oklahoma for the National Championship.

Though the main course is the CFB Playoff, there are still plenty of interesting bowl games for Clemson football fans to watch leading into the Tigers’ matchup with the Buckeyes.

Here’s a look at the ACC bowl schedule for the 2019 season.

2019 ACC Bowl Schedule:

  • Fiesta Bowl: Clemson vs. Ohio State (Dec. 28 at 8 p.m.)
  • Orange Bowl: Virginia vs. Florida (Dec. 30)
  • Birmingham Bowl: Boston College vs. Cincinnati (Jan. 2 at 3 p.m.)
  • Sun Bowl: Florida State vs. Arizona State (Dec. 31 at 2 p.m.)
  • Belk Bowl: Virginia Tech vs. Kentucky (Dec. 31 at noon)
  • Music City Bowl: Louisville vs. Mississippi State (Dec. 30 at 4 p.m.)
  • Camping World Bowl: Notre Dame vs. Iowa State (Dec. 28 at noon)
  • Pinstripe Bowl: Wake Forest vs. Michigan State (Dec. 27 at 3:20 p.m.)

  • Quick Lane Bowl: Pittsburgh vs. Eastern Michigan (Dec. 26 at 8 p.m.)
  • Independence Bowl: Miami vs. Louisiana Tech (Dec. 26 at 4 p.m.)

The ACC had a total of 10 teams (not counting Notre Dame for obvious reasons) get bowl eligible. Outside of watching Clemson football in the CFB Playoff, it should be interesting to see how Bryce Perkins and UVA match-up with Florida in the Orange Bowl.

Virginia Tech-Kentucky in the Belk Bowl, Louisville-Mississippi State in the Music City Bowl, and Wake Forest-Michigan State in the Pinstripe Bowl all should be interesting in terms of those respective programs (all on the rise) having an opportunity to knock off programs from the overhyped SEC and Big Ten conferences.
