ACC moves its championship game to Orlando


ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – The ACC is moving its 2016 football championship to Orlando’s Camping World Stadium.

The conference made the announcement about the Dec. 3 game Thursday.

Orlando emerged as a possible location after the ACC joined other sports leagues in pulling out of North Carolina amid backlash over controversial state House Bill 2.

The law requires transgender people to use restrooms at schools and government buildings corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates. It also excludes gender identity and sexual orientation from local and statewide antidiscrimination protections.

The ACC Championship Game had been scheduled to played in Charlotte at Bank of America Stadium.
