ACC Championship Game preview: Florida State Seminoles vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, 8 p.m. Saturday, ESPN, 620-AM, 820-AM

No. 13 Florida State vs. Georgia Tech, 8, ESPN, 820-AM, 620-AM

Atlantic Division winner FSU (10-2, 7-1 ACC) has won a dozen league titles since joining the conference in 1992. Georgia Tech (6-6, 5-3), which qualified after Miami officials decided to skip the league's championship game in anticipation of NCAA sanctions, beat Clemson in the 2009 ACC title game but was forced to vacate it because of NCAA sanctions.

Watch out for …

A bounce-back game from QB EJ Manuel, the third-most accurate passer in ACC history. Manuel turned it over four times and was hit in the jaw in last week's loss to Florida, briefly leaving the game as FSU lost momentum. "It's tough, but we understand that we have a huge game," he said. "We can't allow that game to linger on."
