The ACC gears up for its inaugural appearance in Shreveport. Feel the excitement.
The closest Atlantic Coast Conference school to Shreveport is Georgia Tech, some 597 miles away in Atlanta. Seven members of the Southeastern Conference are within that range.
It doesn’t seem like the geographic appeal of the AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl would be too great for the ACC, but that’s hardly the case.
The conference recently dropped primary tie-ins with bowls in San Francisco and Boise, Idaho. Relatively speaking, Shreveport seems just around the corner.
As slogans go, “The Independence Bowl – at least it’s not in Boise” lacks a little pizazz, doesn’t it?
