2010 College Football Bowl Selections: Clemson Reportedly Accepts Bid To Meineke Car Care Bowl

One of Maryland's potential bowl destinations appears to have invited a different ACC team. According to a report on CUTigers.com, Clemson has accepted a bid to play in the Meineke Car Care Bowl in Charlotte. 

The site is a pay-site, but Eric Prisbell of the Washington Post confirmed the report here. Maryland was a potential candidate for the game, but the Meineke Car Care Bowl officials had their sights set on Clemson and its large fanbase for a long time. 

That leaves only a few possible bowl destinations for the Terps. Earlier yesterday, the Chick Fil-A Peach Bowl announced that they will take the loser of the ACC Championship Game. That leaves the Sun Bowl, the Champs Sports Bowl, the Music City Bowl and the Military Bowl as possibilities for the Terps. They will be competing with North Carolina, Miami and N.C. State for those four spots. The Military Bowl is the local bowl game here in Washington D.C., but it is also the least prestigious of the three games. The Terps last played in the Champs Sports Bowl back in 2006, when they defeated Purdue.
