The ACC announced that the December 12 game between Notre Dame and Wake Forest will not be played. The game was originally postponed to December in late September. Instead, the Fighting Irish will face the visiting Syracuse in their last game of the season on Saturday. Notre Dame currently holds tiebreakers over Clemson and Miami in the event that they lose Saturday. Wake Forest will be facing Louisville on December 12 instead.

It was also announced that the postponed game between the Clemson Tigers and Florida State University will not be played. So, Clemson could still clinch a spot in the championship game if they win over Virginia Tech on Saturday. Florida State, on the other hand, will be hosting Duke on December 12 and facing Wake Forest on December 19.

Miami still has a chance to earn a spot in the ACC championship game if Clemson were to lose. Miami will play Duke on Saturday and North Carolina on December 12. In the event that Miami does not make it to the ACC championship game, they will play Georgia Tech on December 19.
