How does Detroit sound on the day after Christmas? Two bowl projections now have BC going to the Motor City to take on Maryland in the Quick Lane Bowl, as NBC Sports’ updated projections reunite the former ACC foes on December 26 at Ford Field.
NBC has Wake Forest headed to the Military Bowl to play Temple; NC State off to Shreveport to play in the Independence Bowl against South Carolina; and Army vs. South Florida in the St. Petersburg bowl, another potential BC destination.
Those seem to be the four likeliest bowls for BC at the moment, depending on how things shake out at the top of the ACC. There seems to be a pretty good chance BC ends up playing a power 5 opponent, which is interesting.
BC has played in Detroit during bowl season before, beating the Toledo Rockets in the 2002 Motor City Bowl. That was TOB’s third bowl win and his fourth appearance.
