Both of these teams are out of contention for the College Football Playoff, but there’s still a lot to fight for. The winner will receive a berth to the Orange Bowl while the loser likely misses out on a New Year’s Six bowl.
North Carolina has not won an ACC Championship since 1980. The Tar Heels were dominant for parts of the 1970’s, but they haven’t been able to get back to that level in over four decades. Their only other ACC Conference Championship Game appearance was in 2015.
Clemson is looking to re-capture the ACC title after missing out in 2021. Clemson has won 10+ games in 12 consecutive seasons.
Kickoff is at 8:00 p.m. ET on Saturday night.
