Yeah they may be better than the ACC.
The only Big East school not named West Virginia to win a BCS game is Louisville over Wake Forest in 06 and Miami beat FSU in 03 when Miami was Big East.
With WV gone the Big East ought to have their AQ revoked.
Are there any exceptions to the up coming 4 team playoff format, or will it simply be the top 4 schools? I've also read that they were doing away with the BCS format altogether, if so, what will be used to determine those 4?
(I have the year of the bowl game not the season). Miami also beat Florida in 2001 and Nebraska in 2002 as well as FSU in 2004. You obviously correctly mentioned Louisville in 2007 and West Virginia in 2006 and 2008. The ACC has won exactly 2 BCS games, Va Tech beat Cincinnati in 2009 and Florida State beat Va Tech in 2000. So despite continually raiding the Big East, the ACC is still a lesser conference than the Big East on the national stage and in the bowl games that actually matter. Frankly, I find that hilarious.
There is apparently going to be a selection committee to pick the 4 teams, but I suspect they will use something similar to the BCS to really narrow the field down and will probably weigh more heavily conference champions. Not much out there on who will be on it or what criteria they are supposed to use.
