ACC preseason poll: Florida State No. 1, Clemson No. 2

UVA was the lone team in the division that didn't receive a first-place vote in the 2017 preseason media poll, released Monday morning.

Miami earned 103 votes as Coastal Division champions, ahead of Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech and Pittsburgh.

Clemson was picked behind the Seminoles in the division, followed by Louisville, North Carolina State, Wake Forest, Syracuse and Boston College. He was chosen to repeat after a record-setting campaign in which he averaged 393.4 yards per game of total offense and accounted for 51 touchdowns, both ACC single-season records. Defending national champion Clemson followed with 37 first-place votes and 1,007 points while Louisville received nine first-place votes and checked in with 843 total points.

Miami was selected the likely Coastal Division victor by 103 voters and amassed 1,065 total points.


The Seminoles were picked by the media at ACC kickoff to continue that trend of conference supremacy this season. Clemson came in second place with 35 votes, while Louisville received seven votes, Virginia Tech and Miami each got three votes and Duke had one.

BC defensive end Harold Landry got eight votes for ACC Preseason Player of the Year, fourth among eligible players.

Defending Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson was the preseason pick as conference player of the year, receiving 113 votes for the award, well ahead of Florida State sophomore quarterback Deondre Francois, who received 23 votes.
