Clemson is back in a familiar place. For the third straight season the Tigers are set to line up in the ACC Championship Game. Two years ago in Charlotte the opponent was North Carolina. Last year in Orlando the Tigers took down Virginia Tech. And Saturday night in Charlotte, Miami will present the Tigers with their last hurdle to a third straight College Football Playoff appearance.
The top ranked Tigers are nine-point favorites. Friday head coaches Dabo Swinney and Mark Richt met with the media at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte for a final preview.
