ACC Championship Game History

The Atlantic Coast Conference is the postseason title game for the conference, and it is held on the first Saturday in December. The 12-team league was divided equally into two divisions of six teams each, with the best conference record in each division meeting for the title. Due to future expansion, each division will increase over the next two years with Pittsburgh and Syracuse joining in 2013. Louisville filled the void of Maryland in 2014, who left for the Big Ten in the same year.

The inaugural game was played in 2005 with Virginia Tech entering the game as a two-touchdown favorite against Florida State. Things didn't exactly go according to play for Frank Beamer and the Hokies, as the Seminoles paid off handsomely with a 27-22 outright victory. The following season, the underdog came through again, with Wake Forest winning an ugly 9-6 slugfest.

From 2007-2010, the favorite reigned supreme, with Virginia Tech claiming the title in three of those four games. The over also connected from 2008 through 2010, but the total has been split down the middle in eight championship games to date. The same holds true for the favorite and underdog, with each covering four times.

Since the inception of the championship game format, the Atlantic Division champion has nine titles, and the Coastal Division champion has five titles. Eleven different ACC teams have made an appearance in the championship game, with Louisville, North Carolina State, and Syracuse never appearing in the big game.

Clemson (5), Florida State (4), Virginia Tech (3) are the only schools to have multiple championships, while FSU (2012-14) and Clemson (2015-19) are the only winners in three or more consecutive seasons.
