After a lot of speculation as to whether or not the Atlantic Coast Conference would be moving its annual football championship game from Charlotte and Bank of America Stadium, that ultimately will not be the case as an agreement has been put in place that will leave the game where it is through the 2019 season.

The deal between the conference and Charlotte came to an end following the 2013 season where the eventual national champion Florida State Seminoles beat out the Duke Blue Devils by a wide margin to take the trophy. Right after the game was where folks started wondering whether or not that would be the last of the game to be played in Charlotte, the heart of ACC country.

This year’s game will be played on December 6, and as Kevin McGuire of College Football Talk pointed out, it also appears that there might be a new trophy handed out to the winner as well.


Yet another nice deal for the conference as they will continue their expansion next season with the addition of Louisville.
