The 2010 ACC Championship Game will be Virginia Tech vs. Florida State after Saturday’s games. The 2010 ACC champion gets a BCS bowl game spot, guaranteed to the winner of the conference championship game. In a down year for the conference, Virginia Tech has really stood out as one of the best teams in college football, despite a rough start to their 2010 season. After losing their first two games against Boise State and James Madison, Virginia Tech finished the regular season with 10 straight wins and an undefeated record in ACC play.
Florida State won again on Saturday (over Florida) to finish the season 9-3 overall, but more importantly, they finished 6-2 in the ACC, and won the Atlantic division. They finished one win ahead of both Maryland and North Carolina State on their side of the conference, and got a really lucky break when North Carolina State fell in their final conference game of the season. That gave Florida State a spot in the 2010 ACC Championship Game, and now they have a chance to finish 10-3 and make it into a BCS bowl game. They still have to beat Virginia Tech next weekend to make that happen though.
Virginia Tech went on an amazing run to close out their 2010 regular season, sweeping through the ACC and finishing with an 8-0 conference record. It gave them the division win by three games, and wrapped up a season that included nice wins over North Carolina State, North Carolina, Miami, and Georgia Tech. Now they just need to beat Florida State in the 2010 ACC Championship Game and they will get a spot in the BCS bowl game picture. At the start of the regular season, Virginia Tech was considered to be one of the best teams in college football, and now the resurgent team has placed themselves in a place to play in January.
The Virginia Tech vs. Florida State game will kick off on Saturday, Dec. 4, with the 2010 ACC Championship Game being broadcast on ESPN. Kick off is set for 4:45 pm PT (7:45 pm ET), and it will be a great chance for college football fans to see what the ACC has to offer this year. The winner of this game will be playing against another elite team from around college football in a BCS bowl game, and it means that millions of dollars for the program is on the line Saturday. Both teams have quite a few weapons ready to take the field, and this will be a great game between two teams that didn’t meet in conference play this year.
