They beat 9 bowl teams. I don't understand the narrative that their schedule was weak.

Oregon played only 6 bowl teams. And, oh yeah, they lost to a 3 loss team.

I get the narrative that they did not blow out all their opponents, but I can't understand how that should trump record.

And, regarding the relative strength of the ACC, note that the ACC went 4-0 against the SEC in the final week of the season. FSU was one of those teams and ot beat the other three winners (Clemson, GT, Louisville).
