ESPN The Magazine has a prediction of Clemson over North Carolina in the ACC title game. The magazine is currently for sale at your local newsstands.

The confusing part of this projection is that ESPN's own FPI has Florida State as a 51.6% chance to win the ACC while Clemson has only a 37.9% chance to win the conference. Heisman finalist Deshaun Watson with a balanced team gets the nod in the magazine over FPI's preseason computer data supporting Florida State.

ESPN analyst Brad Edwards predicted a Clemson vs. Oklahoma title game in the same magazine.
