It will be Notre Dame vs Clemson for the ACC Championship in Charlotte on December 19th, but unlike other Miami fans I am not mad. The Canes had their shot in October and didn’t get the job done when they faced Clemson. Miami needs to beat UNC, their toughest opponent not named Clemson to set up a 10-1 season.
