ACC commissioner John Swofford said it was "premature" to discuss whether or not the ACC will continue to bar conference championships in the state of North Carolina due to the state's controversial House Bill 2, according to Brian Hamilton of SI.com.

In September, the conference voted to move the ACC championship in football, normally hosted in Charlotte, to Orlando citing HB2's targeted attack on members of the LGBT community.

The conference thought it would be able to return the game to Charlotte last month after it seemed the bill would be repealed; however, it failed when it went to a vote.

During his media availability, Swofford spoke highly of Orlando and its ability to stage the conference championship game.

Along with the football championship being moved from Charlotte, the ACC relocated nine other conference championships this season.
