Mike Ehrmann

The Seminoles and Yellow Jackets clash in Charlotte for the right to go to the Orange Bowl.

A spot in the Orange Bowl will be up for grabs on Saturday night in Charlotte when the Florida State Seminoles take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in the ACC Championship Game.

Florida State enters the game at 10-2 and coming off a loss to its rival, the Florida Gators. The 13th-ranked Seminoles boast the country's second-best defense by giving up only 249 yards per game. That includes a fourth-best mark of 85 yards per game against the run, key in a game against Georgia Tech.

At 6-6, the Yellow Jackets received their place in the championship game due to self-imposed postseason bans by the North Carolina Tar Heels and Miami Hurricanes. Led by tailbacks Orwin Smith and Zach Laskey, Georgia Tech's option attack garners 323 rushing yards per game.

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

Point spread: Florida State is favored by 14 points
