Congratulations to the ACC’s second best team (Georgia Tech) who took down the SEC’s second best team 49-34 after allowing an inconsequential score to make the game look closer than it was. Despite Georgia Tech’s strong performance yesterday, the ACC’s record for points in a bowl remains NC State’s with 56 vs. Kansas in the 2003 Tangerine Bowl
Maybe the SEC can work a special deal to where they can play each other in bowl games? I mean, why shouldn’t the bowl season be like the regular season when they prefer to only play each other and then evangelize to the rest of the world how great they are?
Perhaps…maybe just perhaps the rest of the world might start to realize that old Florida State might be better than they originally thought. It appears that many Las Vegas betting lines have the Seminoles around a 7.5 point underdog today after the line opened around 9.5 points a few weeks ago. *Perhaps* the fact that they defeated NINE bowl teams this year, including Georgia Tech and Clemson, is starting to get noticed.

Wow…per ESPN: Fifth time this season ACC team beat a nonconf. opponent ranked in top 10. The rest of the country has just two such wins.

Remind me again why the SEC is so great? O that's right they all get ranked high to start the year…. then play each other. I forgot!
