Miami finally reaches ACC title game, will face Clemson

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Miami and Clemson are going to the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game in Charlotte on Dec. 2.
    
Clemson clinched its third consecutive Atlantic Division championship with a 31-14 win Saturday over Florida State. Miami wrapped up its first outright Coastal Division championship when Virginia lost 38-17 at Louisville.
    
Miami leads the all-time series with Clemson 6-4 - but the last meeting was the worst loss in Hurricanes' history. Clemson beat Miami 58-0 on Oct. 24, 2015, a day before the Hurricanes fired Al Golden and a few weeks before they hired current coach Mark Richt.
    
It's Clemson's fifth berth in the ACC title game. The Tigers are 3-1 in their previous trips, winning in each of the last two seasons.
