Divisional titles are wrapped up, now it’s on to other matters for members of the ACC.

Clemson and Miami have already clinched the Atlantic and Coastal division crowns, respectively. The two teams will face off on Dec. 2, perhaps with a College Football Playoff berth on the line.

Clemson has wrapped up ACC play and at 7-1. After a matchup with The Citadel on Saturday, the Tigers get rival South Carolina, then Miami for the ACC championship.

Miami, at 9-0 overall and 6-0 in league play, has games against Virginia and Pittsburgh coming up.
