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.
