ACC Championship game question

Posted: Nov 28, 2020, 11:51 AM

I keep reading that if we don’t play FSU and both us and Miami win out, that Miami would get the tiebreaker over us for the ACCCG. How is that possible now that Miami has a game with GT on 12/19, the same day as the ACCCG is to be played?

We beat Miami? Why would they have the tie breaker?

down to a simple head-to-head from the two vying for spot #2. With Miami having to postpone a game also already we should play the same # of league games and thus have the same record. This could occur even if we don't reschedule FSU for the 12th.

Not sure though how the league drew up its tie-breaker scenario for this very odd season, but if it's a decision between two teams with identical conference records, head to head is the standard next in line decider.

We have to play within one game of the average number of games played by the entire ACC.

At that point, we win the tiebreaker because we beat Miami.


If you take all games each team in the ACC played - and it comes to an average of 9.25 games, you round down to 9.

Everyone that played 8 games or more is in the “game”.

If we end up 9-1 and Miami ends up 10-1 - we go because we beat Miami head to head.
