Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium will host the Dr. Pepper ACC Championship game December 2nd.

"That was the next goal for us", head coach Dabo Swinney said after the game.

Miami joined the ACC in 2004, but failed to find the ACC title game under Larry Coker, Randy Shannon and Al Golden.

Clemson will certainly have to play better than it did on Saturday if it hopes to have a chance to defend its title. With the win, Clemson improves to 9-1 overall and 6-1 in the ACC and wins the conference's Atlantic division for the third straight season.

Clemson running back Travis Etienne did a little bit of everything for the Tigers in their 24-14 win over rival Florida State.

Etienne, a freshman, ran the ball 14 times for 97 yards and two touchdowns.
