Bowl predictions for North Carolina teams

With the college football regular season wrapped up and the conference championship games coming up, it's time to start thinking about bowl games.

All three Triangle teams qualified for a bowl game this year. Before the bowl schedule comes out, UNC will first have to play in the ACC Championship game on Saturday which could greatly affect their post-season placement.

In a press conference Monday, Larry Fedora said that if they beat No. 1 Clemson, the Tar Heels deserve to be in the College Football Playoffs.

Right now ESPN predicts UNC will play Oklahoma State in the Russell Athletic Bowl.
