ACC media tabs Florida State to end Clemson's run

The press has spoken and Florida State has emerged from ACC Media Days as the favorite to win the conference for the 2017 season.

The Seminoles received 118 votes to win the ACC, easily topping Clemson‘s 35 for tops in the conference. The Atlantic Division took all of the top three spots as Louisville comes next with seven first-place votes.

School 1st-place votes
Florida State 118
Clemson 35
Louisville 7
Virginia Tech 3
Miami 3
Duke 1

The Atlantic Division voting breaks down very similar to the overall ACC voting, as Florida State leads the way with the overwhelming majority, and only the Seminoles, Tigers and Cardinals receiving first-place votes.

School Points 1st-place votes
Florida State 1108 121
Clemson 1007 37
Louisville 843 9
NC State 658 0
Wake Forest 415 0
Syracuse 362 0
Boston College 283 0

The Coastal Division is wide open, with Miami garnering the majority of the votes. However, six of seven programs received a first-place nod.

School Points 1st-place votes
Miami 1065 103
Virginia Tech 932 40
Georgia Tech 708 9
Pitt 673 7
North Carolina 606 4
Duke 473 4
Virginia 219 0

Should Miami win the Coastal, it would give the Hurricanes a chance at their first ACC title since joining the conference, and a chance to end the six-year run of Atlantic Division champions in the title game.
