Who will Clemson play in the ACC Championship this December? Two main candidates have emerged.
The ACC media vote is set to be unveiled Friday but FOX Sports got theirs in already for the top-5 in the conference -- all picking Clemson at No. 1.
Former Ohio State and Florida coach Urban Meyer has Notre Dame as the next-best, followed by UNC, Miami and Louisville.
Fox lead CFB analyst Joel Klatt has the same top-4 but slips Virginia Tech in at fifth place.
Heisman winner and former USC standout Reggie Bush and FOX studio host Rob Stone have UNC as the ACC's No. 2, with Bush slotting Notre Dame behind Miami in fourth.
Former Trojans QB Matt Leinart and former Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn also like Notre Dame as runner-up with Quinn slotting Miami as third, UNC fourth and Pittsburgh fifth.
FOX's ACC fan vote ranked them Clemson, Notre Dame, UNC, Miami and Louisville.
