The Panthers have been bowl eligible since their win over Clemson. But these days, that’s hardly something to brag about, since there are 80 berths available. You don’t even have to have a winning record.
With a, 8-4 record and a top 25 ranking, the Panthers seem to be in line to play in a more prestigious bowl game than anything from their last seven years.
