|ACC supports deregulation of conference championship games|

According to a report released Friday by CBSSports.com, the Atlantic Coast Conference supports deregulation of conference championship games.
The report states that intent is to allow leagues their preference in how to determine their conference champion. It would theoretically eliminate the need -- per NCAA rules -- to split into divisions with the division winners meeting in a conference championship game.
If the new legislation is adopted a league could match its two highest-ranked teams in order to get as many teams as possible into the new four-team playoff. That would probably mean a league would play in one division.
How would that affect Clemson? If that had been in place last season, Clemson would have likely been placed in a rematch with Florida St. in the conference championship game. It would also do away with the two divisions, and teams would probably play each other on a rotating basis while keeping traditional rivalries in place.
