The # 7 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (10-1) have won the Coastal Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference and will contest against the Atlantic Division Champion at the 2009 Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship taking place December 5 in Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Fla.
Shaping up for a race to the finish in the Atlantic Division are the Clemson Tigers and the Boston College Eagles! Clemson can clinch a spot in the title game with a win this weekend or a Boston College loss. Boston College can clinch with a Clemson loss and two more wins in their season.
Will you be there? Tickets are on sale now for this year’s game, which returns to prime time national television, with an 8 p.m. (ET) kickoff on ESPN.
Georgia Tech's last ACC title was a share in 1998. The Jackets won it outright in 1990, the same year they won the national title. Their last trip to the ACC title game was in 2006. This 2009 Georgia Tech team, though, is viewed by many as the best it's been in a long time.
Clemson’s last ACC title was in 1991 and has never been to the ACC Championship since its existence.
