The ACC's football title game is officially staying in Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium, according to sources. One source classified the league's agreement with the city as a done deal.

CBSSports.com reported in October that ACC officials gave commissioner John Swofford full support to negotiate with Charlotte and didn't favor any other cities.

The ACC's contract with the city expired after December's game between FSU and Duke. After playing in Jacksonville, Tampa and Charlotte since 2005, the ACC seems open to a permanent home.

The ACC has a long-term contract with ESPN, which has an office in Charlotte and might run a 24-hour ACC channel out of those headquarters.
