It's rare to see two programs with this much history have so few meetings, but the Tigers and Panthers have only played twice before. Pitt was victorious in the first meeting back in the Gator Bowl. The next showdown was just two years ago when then-undefeated Clemson suffered its first and only loss of the season, falling to unranked Pitt on a last-second field goal by Panthers kicker Chris Blewitt. But don't think that Pat Narduzzi and his staff, Pitt's players and especially Pitt's fans aren't thinking about that night in Death Valley as they prepare for Saturday's game against No. If Pitt can beat a Deshaun Watson-led title-winning Clemson team at home, it's got a shot against the Tigers' freshman quarterback on a neutral field with the ACC title on the line.
History[ edit ] There had been repeated calls for the ACC to establish its own cable channel, similar to those that had or were being established by other Power Five conferences.
This policy effectively discourages schools from leaving the ACC, and left the SEC as the only Power Five conference to not have a similar grant requirement.
Barron , president of Florida State University , stated that the grant would "ensure that the conference will strengthen its position of leadership among Division I athletics", and stated that "we are also very pleased that we will be moving forward on the next phase of developing an ACC network.
Ahead of the television network's launch, ESPN announced that it would begin to stream ACC events beginning in the upcoming season.
ESPN also acquired the secondary ACC rights previously held by Raycom Sports for its syndicated ACC Network the company will continue to be involved as a subcontractee for events that can be carried by the new channel.
ESPN promoted that it would carry over live telecasts per-season.
