Cover Story: Charlotte ACC Football Championship

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Picture it.  A jam-packed Bank of America Stadium in December.

Yes, this December.  It's not the Panthers bringing the crowds, but the coveted ACC football championship game.

It looks like going to be a sellout, and that's a bigger deal for Charlotte than we might think.

It's exactly what the ACC envisioned when they expanded to 12 teams and created a football championship game and what Charlotte was so desperately trying to get.

Now the city is pulling out all the stops to try to keep the game here.
