The ACC Championship Game is one of the best events of the college football season. The game has national championship implications many years, and has a direct path into the Orange Bowl for the winner. The top team from the Coastal Division plays the top team from the Atlantic Division to crown the winner of the Atlantic Coast Conference. The inaugural game was played in 2005 at Alltel Stadium (now Everbank Field) between Florida State and Virginia Tech, which was won by the Seminoles 27-22. Thus far, only FSU, Wake Forrest, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech and Clemson have won the title. Virginia Tech leads the pack with three wins, with FSU close behind winning two.
Fans going to the ACC Championship get to experience a great tailgating atmosphere, as well as a world-class football game between two teams looking for the conference hardware they’ve worked all season to get. While the ACC already had great college football powerhouse teams like Florida State and Virginia Tech, they’ve recently added Pitt and Syracuse and will add Louisville in 2014.
