ACC sets bowl lineup for 2013 season
GREENSBORO — The ACC has set its bowl lineup for its first season as a 14-team league.
The league announced Monday that it will have eight guaranteed bowl slots and a conditional deal for a ninth bowl.
The league champion will go to the Orange Bowl if it is not in the national title game. If only one ACC team makes a BCS bowl, the next pick belongs to the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
The Russell Athletic Bowl picks next, followed by the Sun, Belk, Music City, Advocare V100 — formerly the Independence — and Military bowls.
The league also has a conditional deal with the Fight Hunger Bowl if either the Pac-12 or BYU can’t fulfill its commitment.
DUKE GETS NO. 2 SEED — The Duke men’s golf team, No. 10 in the latest Golf World/Nike Golf Coaches’ Poll, received the No. 2 seed in the Tempe Regional as announced Monday by the NCAA Division I Golf Committee.
The Blue Devils were awarded an automatic regional bid after winning the ACC Championship and will travel to Tempe, Ariz., to play on the ASU Karsten Golf Course (May 16-18) to compete for a spot in the 2013 NCAA Championship.
UCLA claimed the top seed in the region followed by Duke, Georgia, Texas A&M and Clemson. Vanderbilt is the six-seed with Central Florida at No. 7 and North Carolina, Arizona State and Kennesaw State rounding out the top 10. Arizona (11th), Austin Peay (12th), New Mexico State (13th) and Lehigh (14th) round out the east regional seeding.
The NCAA Championship will be played May 28-June 2 at the Capital City Club, Crabapple Course in Alpharetta, Ga.
Duke has qualified for NCAA regional play in each of the past 15 seasons and has advanced to the championship eight times in that span.
