Clemson wants to speed up the court’s decision about television rights

Clemson University has requested a partial summary judgment in their lawsuit against the Atlantic Coast Conference. The motion, if approved, would expedite the decision regarding who would own Clemson’s television rights if they decided to leave the conference.

The Tigers are requesting some sort of resolution by mid-July. If the school wished to leave the conference after the 2024-25 athletic calendar, they would need to inform the ACC by mid-August.
