After going 9-3 in bowl play this year there's no denying that the ACC has stepped their game up as far as Football goes but could they be "The Best"? Dabo Swinney says yes!

Traditionally known for Basketball teams like Clemson, Florida State, Louisville, Miami and Virginia Tech are leading the way for a new future of the ACC.

Clemson coach told ESPN "I think all you media folks need to change your stories," Swinney said during a news conference. "It sounds good. I've been in this league a long time, and this league has never gotten the respect that it deserves."

Not only is the ACC home to the National Champions and Heisman Trophy but they had a big year against the other Football Power Conferences...                                                   10-4 against the SEC                                                                                                         6-2 against the Big Ten                                                                                                   51-17 against all nonconference opponents (Best Record in the NCAA)

Only time will tell but one thing is undeniable... The ACC is no longer just a Basketball Conference!
