The ACC Championship Game between Clemson and Virginia Tech is arguably the best matchup on the championship game slate, outside of a SEC Championship game with actual national title implications. If you needed another reason to tune in, Hokies right tackle Blake DeChristopher's beard should be taken into strong consideration.
DeChristopher is reportedly famous for his late-night antics come time for bed checks the night before games. What exactly that entails, coaches wouldn't say. DeChristopher blames the beard.
"I don't know if it'll let me cut it," DeChristopher said. "It'll probably slap me. ... I told Coach Beamer I was going to shave it for [the awards banquet] Friday, that little ceremony, and he said, 'No way. It's lucky for us.'"
DeChristopher has yet to allow a sack all season, within a unit that has allowed just 12 this year. This week, he was awarded the ACC's Jacobs Blocking Trophy, given to the conference's best offensive lineman as voted on by the league's head coaches and defensive coordinators.
