Clemson Destroys Miami 38-3 to Win 2017 ACC Championship

Charlotte police have made an arrest after a fight in the stands of the ACC Championship football game that was seen by thousands on social media.

The Tigers scored early and never took their foot off the pedal.

Bryant also rushed for a touchdown in the first half, as did running backs Travis Etienne and Adam Choice.

No. 1 Clemson and No. 7 Miami are set to meet in the ACC championship game Saturday night at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. The Clemson receiving corps was spread out, with 11 different pass catchers hauling in a reception in the rout.

Miami will be hampered offensively with season-ending injuries to wide receiver Ahmmon Richards and tight end Christopher Herndon.

Clemson forced three turnovers in the third quarter with two of them created by senior cornerback Ryan Carter. Miami is 10-1 on the season, but heads into its matchup with Clemson on the heels of a 24-14 upset loss at Pittsburgh last week.

Still, it seems unlikely that a two-loss Clemson team would make the playoff ahead of the SEC champion, Big Ten champion, Oklahoma (assuming the Sooners knock off TCU in the Big 12 title game), ACC champion Miami, and one-loss Alabama. No two-loss team has made the four-team playoff bracket in its first three years of existence, although Auburn now is ranked No. 2 despite having lost twice this season - including to Clemson.
