The 2012 ACC Championship Game was the eighth football championship game for the Atlantic Coast Conference. It featured the winners of the ACCs two divisions, the Atlantic Division's Florida State Seminoles[1] and the Coastal Division's Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. With three teams tied for the first place in the Coastal Division, only Georgia Tech was eligible for the Championship Game. Miami self-imposed a postseason ban in a bid to lessen possible NCAA sanctions (see 2011 University of Miami athletics scandal). North Carolina was serving a one-year bowl ban handed down by the NCAA (see UNC's NCAA investigation 2010-2011)

This was the game's third consecutive year at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the ACC has announced that the 2013 championship game will also be played in Charlotte.[2]
