Pithy Comments

- Clemson wins its first ACC championship since 1991 and its league-leading 14th overall.
- Defense gets both teams to the championship game, but it's Clemson's playmakers, particularly C.J. Spiller that capture the conference title for the Tigers.
- Clemson has maybe the best defense in the ACC and an improved offensive line capable of doing what last year's Tiger team was expected to do.
