ACC sets bowl lineup for 2013 season

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — The Atlantic Coast Conference has set its bowl lineup for its first season as a 14-team league.

The league announced Monday that it will have eight guaranteed bowl slots and a conditional deal for a ninth bowl.

The league champion will go to the Orange Bowl if it is not in the national title game. If only one ACC team makes a BCS bowl, the next pick belongs to the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

The Russell Athletic Bowl picks next, followed by the Sun, Belk, Music City, Advocare V100 — formerly the Independence — and Military bowls.

The league also has a conditional deal with the Fight Hunger Bowl if either the Pac-12 or BYU can't fulfill its commitment.
