The 2005 ACC Championship Game was the inaugural contest of the game
held to decide the winner of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC)
championship in American college football. Held December 3 at
Jacksonville Municipal Stadium in Jacksonville, Florida, between the
Virginia Tech Hokies and the Florida State Seminoles, the game was the
final contest of the regular season for the two teams. Florida State and
Virginia Tech had previously played in the 2000 National Championship
Game. In 2004 Virginia Tech had won the last ACC Championship to be
awarded without playing a championship game at the end of the season. In
the 2005 season Tech lost only one regular season conference game, to
the fifth-ranked Miami Hurricanes, and won the Coastal Division title.
Florida State earned a bid to the ACC Championship Game by fighting
through an Atlantic Division schedule that included several nationally
ranked teams. Florida State won the game 27–22.

Wikiquote quote of the day:
I remember my youth and the feeling that will never come back any
more — the feeling that I could last for ever, outlast the sea, the
earth, and all men; the deceitful feeling that lures us on to joys, to
perils, to love, to vain effort — to death; the triumphant conviction
of strength, the heat of life in the handful of dust, the glow in the
heart that with every year grows dim, grows cold, grows small, and
expires — and expires, too soon — too soon before life itself.
