ACC Bowl Participant Payouts: Since 1999

by Maize_in_Spartyland

 

(Sorted by average amount brought in by a school, per season)

(Individual bowl game amounts were compiled using figures provided by collegefootballpoll.com).

 

First, a couple notes . . .

  • For the 2005-2006 bowl season, Florida State’s bowl payout was listed at $14-17 million. They lost to Penn State, so we will use the $14 million figure.
  • For the 2006-2007 bowl season, Wake Forest’s bowl payout was listed at $14-17 million. They lost to Louisville, so we will use the $14 million figure.
  • For the 2008-2009 bowl season, Miami (FL)’s bowl payout was listed at $750-825 thousand. They lost to California, so we will use the $750 thousand figure.
  • For the 2009-2010 bowl season, Boston College’s bowl payout was listed at $750-825 thousand. They lost to USC, so we will use the $750 thousand figure.
  • For the 2010-2011 bowl season, Boston College’s bowl payout was listed at $750-825 thousand. They lost to Nevada, so we will use the $750 thousand figure.
  • For the 2011-2012 bowl season, Clemson was the automatic bid; Virginia Tech was an at large. As such, Virginia Tech is listed as having $6 million, the proper amount for a second team from the same conference.

 

Its anyone’s guess as to when Pittsburgh and Syracuse join the ACC, but it could be as soon as the 2013 season. The ACC last expanded in 2005, with the addition of Boston College – they year before Miami (FL) and Virginia Tech joined the conference.

 

Florida State has brought in the most money in bowl game appearances for the conference, since 1999, but Virginia Tech has brought in the highest average per year. Outside of those teams, most have brought in a total of $19-34 million, far behind the Seminoles and Hokies. With Coach Bobby Bowden’s success and the recent success of Virginia Tech under Coach Frank Beamer, its no surprise those two teams have been among the most consistent. Don’t be surprised to see those two teams in the ACC Championship this fall.
