I think both scenarios are good for the ACC.


ND wins the championship, good for the league as it affords immediate added credibility to a conference dominated by one team only. ND goes 5-5, good for the ACC only if ND loses 5 games to teams that have turned out to be outstanding on the season. Bad for the ACC if those 5 losses come to average teams at best, demonstrating that ND adds nothing to the stature of the league.
