2011-12 College Football Bowl Schedule: ACC's Bowl Lineup Nearly Set

The ACC's 2011-12 bowl lineup is nearly complete. Seven of the nine bowls that have ties with the conference have announced their dates and times so far.

Only the bottom two bowls in the ACC's pecking order -- the Military Bowl and the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl -- have yet to announce when they'll be played. Last season, the Military Bowl was played on December 29, while BC played out in San Francisco in the penultimate day of the 2010-11 college football season (January 9).

This year though, it's anyone's guess. As New Years Day falls on a Sunday this year, the college football bowl schedule will likely look very different from years past.

The ACC will kick things off on Monday, December 26 in the Independence Bowl down in Shreveport, Louisiana. After that, the conference will play in a bowl a day -- with the exception of Wednesday -- leading up to Saturday's blockbuster ACC bowl doubleheader featuring the Sun Bowl (2 PM) and the Peach Bowl (7:30 PM). The Continental Tire Meineke Car Care Belk Bowl is on Tuesday, 12/27, followed by the Champs Sports Bowl on 12/29 and the Music City Bowl on 12/30.

Hopefully, ESPN slots either the Military Bowl or the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl (or both!) on Wednesday, December 28 to complete a week-long college football orgy of ACC bowl action! Get some.

After the jump, the ACC bowl schedule as it stands today.
