    ACC bowl projections for Week 5 of the 2016 season. The Louisville-Clemson tilt will have major national implications.


    Florida State survived its test at USF on Saturday, as the Seminoles managed to put behind the disastrous loss the previous week to Louisville by riding workhorse running back Dalvin Cook.

    Meanwhile, Clemson will put its No. 2 spot in the Fiesta Bowl on the line when the Tigers take on Lamar Jackson and Louisville this coming week.

    Will the ACC ultimately once again have representation in the College Football Playoff?
