For Maryland, it's Boise, Boise, Boise
Barring something completely unforeseen, Maryland is headed to Boise, Idaho, to play Nevada in the Humanitarian Bowl on Dec. 30. A formal announcement is expected tomorrow night.
Maryland officials clung to slim hope of winding up in Charlotte’s Meineke Car Care Bowl, but Virginia Tech’s victory in the ACC title game crushed those hopes. The reason why Maryland now has no chance to wind up in Charlotte is because the Orlando Champs Sports Bowl will now jump to take Florida State, Nashville will be forced to take Boston College and Charlotte will snatch North Carolina. San Francisco’s Emerald Bowl is expected to grab Miami, leaving the Terrapins for Boise.
In honor of the late Tim Russert, I feel like grabbing a grease board and scribbling three words: “Boise. Boise. Boise.” So Maryland will reluctantly travel 2,400 miles to the bowl that never wanted the Terps in the first place.
Here is how the ACC bowl picture is expected to unfold when announcements are made tomorrow night:
Orange: Virginia Tech
Peach: Georgia Tech
Orlando: Florida State
Nashville: Boston College
Charlotte: North Carolina
San Francisco: Miami
D.C.: Wake Forest
