The 2013 ACC Championship Game was the eighth football championship game for the Atlantic Coast Conference. It featured the Florida State Seminoles, winners of the ACC’s Atlantic Division, and the Duke Blue Devils, winners of the ACC’s Coastal Division. Duke is the first team other than Georgia Tech or Virginia Tech to represent the Coastal in the ACC Championship Game.
This was the game’s fourth consecutive year at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.
A 45-7 Florida State win cemented a position for the Seminoles in the national championship game while Duke settled for the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Jameis Winston, quarterback of the Florida State Seminoles, accounted for four total touchdowns (3 passing, 1 rushing) and Devonta Freeman paced the rushing attack with 91 yards on 18 carries and a touchdown in the dominating victory.
With the win, the Seminoles will likely face Auburn in the national championship game scheduled for January 6, 2014.
