There is still one week of regular season football to be played, but we've already got a few of the league title game matchups decided. We've known for a few weeks that Alabama will take on Georgia in the SEC's championship game. Now we know who will be playing for the ACC title as well.

Clemson wrapped up the Atlantic division last week with a win over Boston College. Saturday, the other half of the conference was decided.

Pittsburgh, after taking down Wake Forest, will represent the Coastal in the league title game. Pitt is currently 6-1 in the league with an overall record of 7-4.

Virginia can still tie Pitt from a win-loss standpoint, but the Panthers beat the Cavaliers earlier in the season and therefore have the tiebreaker.

Mark May, for one, is excited. He's a Pitt alum, and he has hope heading into the contest.

Pitt's only loss in conference, oddly enough, came to North Carolina. It is currently the Tar Heels' only ACC victory.

The game will take place on December 1. Clemson will likely be playing for another trip to the College Football Playoff. Pitt will be playing spoiler.
