Remember when the ACC was considered a poorly paid understudy of bigger college football conferences like the Big Ten, SEC and Pac-10? No, we can't really recall that either. Read on as we explain how to get a Notre Dame vs Clemson live stream and watch college football's 2020 ACC Championship game online wherever you are right now.

This year, the ACC boasts arguably the two best NCAA football teams in the country - and they're set to clash again today in a rematch of what's easily been the game of the season so far.

Notre Dame vs Clemson live stream

Notre Dame vs Clemson kicks off today (Saturday, December 19) at 4pm ET / 1pm PT in the US, which is 9pm GMT in the UK. Full TV and college football live stream details are below - and you can watch from anywhere with the help of a good VPN (opens in new tab).

Everything's on the line at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, NC this Saturday as no. 2 ranked Notre Dame look to protect their undefeated 10-0 record and seal a spot in the NCAA college football playoffs - an honor that's limited to just four teams.

Clemson enters the 2020 ACC Championship game ranked no. 3 in the nation by most accounts and have just one loss to their name this season - that being the 47-40 double OT thriller that went the way of the Fighting Irish back in November.

That game's going to be hard to beat. But today's Notre Dame vs Clemson encounter promises to be every bit as spectacular, not least because college football's brightest star - Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence - is back under center for the Tigers tonight. Next year's presumptive No.1 NFL draft pick had to watch from the sidelines for the first encounter between the two schools, having tested positive for Covid-19. 

With one of these two teams destined for college football's final four, this is arguably the biggest game in ACC history. Follow our guide below for full details of how to watch a Notre Dame vs Clemson live stream and catch all the action from the 2020 ACC Championship game online today.


How to watch Notre Dame vs Clemson from outside your country

If you've mismatched a holiday or you're away on business and you want to watch your country's coverage from abroad, then you'll need to use a VPN. This will help you dial in to a location back in your home country to avoid geo-blocks and regain access to the content and services you already pay for back home.

A VPN is generally perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location when the big game is on.
