"We've got an unbelievable amount of respect for Notre Dame here at Clemson".

UCF joins Ohio State, and Georgia on the outside looking in. The Tigers clinched the ACC championship for the fourth consecutive time on Saturday, becoming the first team in ACC history to win four consecutive outright titles. "So we're thrilled to be in the final four".

Ohio State's consolation prize for missing out on the College Football Playoff is a classic matchup in the Granddaddy of Them All. Those fan bases might not be as large, but there are five conferences with 60 schools so why not keep them involved, too?
