Florida State vs. Georgia Tech, 2012 ACC Championship: Preview and TV schedule

Mike Ehrmann

Florida State can win its second ACC title since 2005 with a win over Georgia Tech on Saturday night. Both teams are making their third appearance in the conference championship.

The Florida State Seminoles meet the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in the 2012 ACC Championship game on Saturday night. Florida State is making its second appearance in the title game in the last three seasons, and its third appearance since the league added a title game in 2005. The Seminoles won the inaugural ACC title game.

Georgia Tech is also making its third appearance in the conference championship game. The Jackets won the title in 2009 but had the victory vacated because of NCAA sanctions. This season, it was sanctions against other schools that helped the Jackets reach the title game -- Coastal Division rivals North Carolina and Miami are ineligible for postseason play.

Florida State finished the season tied for first with Clemson in the Atlantic Division at 7-1 and advanced to the title game thanks to a win over the Tigers in September.

Florida State and Georgia Tech did not play each other during the regular season.

Game time, TV channel: 8 p.m. ET, ESPN

Odds: Florida State is favored by 14 points
