Do they really need 6 days to figure out Clemson is the national game? It was last time. What other game could possibly top it?

Official: ACC Championship will be at 4pm ET as opposed to prime time. I assume it is to avoid the SEC and Big Ten in prime time. I think it's a good move and assuming no championship game at the same time on FOX and a Clemson/Notre Dame rematch might be the most watched game of the day.

The only possible competition in that time slot appears to be the Mountain West FCG... ACC FCG should crush that.

Do they really need 6 days to figure out Clemson is the national game? It was last time. What other game could possibly top it?

The reasons they are probably using a 6-day hold are:
1) to see which games are canceled by the pandemic - this game could be noon, 3:30 pm, or 7 pm on ABC, depending on what else is available (i.e. it may punch beyond its weight).
2) ESPN has a certain number of 6-day holds, and they don't carry over; it's a little like coaches who want to use all of their timeouts.

Pitt-Clemson promoted back to ABC due to Colorado-USC cancellation.

RE: Game Time Announcements/Speculation
The ACC finally announced Dec. 5 game times.

https://theacc.com/news/2020/11/29/acc-a...dec-5.aspx

Trevor Lawrence and Company will be prime time on ABC following two Big Ten games (assuming COVID-19's blessing), Ohio State-Michigan State and Indiana-Wisconsin.

Either the RSN's got to pick ahead of ACCN or the ACCN thinks UNC is an attractive enough a draw to overcome an FCS team.

Also notable is Duke is playing Miami instead of Florida State. Miami will play its first game since Nov. 14 while Florida State will miss its third straight game, having last played Nov. 14.

GT avoided Raycom deep into the season for a conference game. I'll call that a mild victory.

Logistically, it is possible. Both Clemson and Duke will have played nine conference games after this weekend, and neither have another conference game scheduled. I would say the possibility of this game happening are greater than a rescheduled game between Clemson and FSU.
