Who will make the 2021 Orange Bowl?
While Clemson is certainly the favorite to win the conference, they are also heavily favored to matriculate into the playoff (Rose and Sugar this year). Who is the favorite to play in the Orange Bowl? Is it a #2 team from the Atlantic (FSU? Louisville?) Or will the Coastal champ get in again, even if they close the season with a loss to Clemson?

Here is a place to Vote on the NY6: https://cfbcomputer.wordpress.com/vote-playoff/

If things go chalk, Clemson is in the playoff. Even with 1 loss (unless it is to a 1-loss or better Notre Dame) the Tigers should make the playoff. Then, Miami is probably best positioned to take the Orange spot. But, if we're playing favorites, then the odds that Clemson wins the ACC but doesn't make the playoff are still better than any 1 other team winning the ACC right now. We'll see after the first month if any 2nd team distinguishes themselves in non-conference play.

It's interesting that I've seen some publications place USC, Boise, and Cincinnati in the Orange 01-wingedeagle. I know you all can do better.

Seeing as how one team must be an ACC school and the opponent has to be from either the B1G, SEC or Notre Dame, that's a long shot.
