The 11th annual Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game is again set for a primetime kickoff and will be televised nationally beginning at 7:45 (on ESPN) or 8 p.m. (on ABC). Bank of America Stadium, home of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers and the Belk Bowl, will serve as the host venue for the sixth consecutive year and is set to play host to the game through 2019.
The five previous Dr Pepper ACC Championship Games held in Charlotte have been extremely successful from a fan experience and attendance standpoint, with an average of over 68,000 fans per year. That includes sellout crowds in both 2010 and 2011, and a Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game record crowd of 73,675 in 2011. Over the last five years, the ACC ranks second among all conferences in total attendance at its football championship games.
The winner of the 2015 Dr Pepper ACC Championship Game, if not selected for the four-team College Football Playoff, will earn the right to play in one of two New Year’s Six bowls – either the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on New Year’s Eve or the Fiesta Bowl on New Year’s Day.
The ACC’s 14 football members enter this fall looking to build upon the momentum of a 2014 season that saw conference champion Florida State participate in the inaugural College Football Playoff and produced a Capital One Orange Bowl winner for a third straight year in Georgia Tech. The ACC became the first conference in NCAA history to send 11 teams to bowl games in back-to-back years.
Five ACC teams – division winners Florida State and Georgia Tech, plus Clemson, Duke and Louisville – posted at least nine regular-season wins in 2014, and the ACC tied its all-time high with six student-athletes earning consensus first-team All-America honors.
