Tonights ACC Championship game is a match between the ten and one University of Miami Hurricanes and the eleven and one Clemson Tigers. Miami will compete for the ACC Championship for the first time since joining the conference. The Canes managed to get through most of their schedule by winning some real nail biters. The first real challenge came against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish who the Canes blew out at home. They took their first loss of the season last week against Pittsburgh. Despite several of the Canes key contributors being out with injury this evening, the Canes hope to continue to surprise people.
A win tonight would be another upset win for Miami. The Clemson Tigers come into the night ranked number one (Hurricanes currently ranked 7th) in the country. The winner of this game is expected to be chosen as one of the four teams to compete for a national title in what is college football's mini, four-team playoff system (needs to be eight teams). Clemson comes into this game not only much higher ranked and favored by a large amount but also with an overall more experienced coaching staff when it comes to championship level games.
