Turkey Bowling

TechSideLine.com has an interesting article up today reviewing ACC bowl performance over the past 13 years. Why 13 years? Because that’s exactly the length of the current Virginia Tech bowl streak. So, it’s a bit of a self-serving sample, but it’s still a good review of recent history.
The Hokies have been to a bowl in each of the past 13 seasons, but have gone only 6-7 in those games.
Florida State has also been to 13 consecutive (24 actually) bowl games, including an incredible 11 BCS games in that period. The Seminoles have 8 wins and 5 losses in those games.
Surprisingly, Virginia ties Miami for third place with 11 bowls. Miami’s number was hurt a bit by probation, but is boosted with 6 BCS appearances in their 11 games.
Boston College’s stats stick out for this reason – in their 9 bowl games, they have 8 wins! That’s an amazing percentage, and those 8 wins tie FSU for the most over this period.
Curiously, bitter rivals UNC and NC State have performed nearly identically, with 8 bowls and 5 wins.
