From Heather Dinich of ESPN:

Option 1A) Clemson vs. Virginia Tech: Both fan bases would draw huge crowds, bring a great tailgating scene to Charlotte, and make the most of their time in the city. Clemson would be playing for its first ACC title since 1991, and the Hokies would be looking to redeem themselves from their 23-3 loss during the regular season. The offense under quarterback Logan Thomas has made significant strides since that game, and you can almost guarantee that Virginia Tech would find the end zone this time around and be more efficient on offense. The question is whether the injury-laden defense could make enough stops to contain the Tigers. Based on what we’ve seen to this point in the season, it’s a matchup Clemson should win.

Option 1B) Clemson vs. Georgia Tech: A repeat of the 2009 ACC championship game, one of the best matchups in the title game in recent years. Another fourth-quarter finish would be expected, and this would be one of the toughest matchups to predict. Georgia Tech continues to find a way to beat Clemson in the games with the highest stakes, and they could do it again, especially if Clemson’s defense continues to struggle against the spread option offense.

in the lineup? You want the truth? I have no idea who I’d pick to win this game if they were playing tomorrow. Maybe that uncertainty promises the better game. There’s no question Georgia Tech looked like the better team this past weekend, but could they do it twice in the same season? Why not? They’ve done it before.
