The 15th ACC championship takes place this weekend between a team that has made Charlotte their second home and the newest teams from the Coastal Division.
This weekend, the ACC will have their best football teams in Charlotte for the annual ACC championship game – okay, let me rephrase that: they are going to have their best football team for much of the last five seasons taking the field against a team that was the last one to win the other division. Sound better?
For the fifth straight season, the Clemson Tigers are making their way up to the Queen City as the winners of the Atlantic Division and are looking to win the conference for the fifth straight season – which would be the second longest in league history since FSU football brought home nine straight from 1992 to 2000.
In the other corner, you have a Virginia Cavaliers team who will be playing in the title game for the first time and almost didn’t have enough to make it – until a convincing win over a hated rival at the end of the regular season made them the seventh different team from the Coastal Division to advance in the last seven seasons.
Let’s take a look at what we’ll see Saturday night inside Bank of America Stadium.
