Florida State Picked to Win ACC

|

The Florida State Seminoles accomplished many great things last season en route to their first national championship since 1999. They came out and snatched the golden trophy from the grasps of the SEC when no one thought they would.

Now back at home, the target is on them.

Florida State is the overwhelming favorite to three-peat as ACC champions. The Seminoles received a whopping 104 first place votes out of a possible 108. Virginia Tech and Clemson each received two votes to win the 2015 ACC crown.

The Miami Hurricanes are the favorites to win the Coastal Division which would be the program’s first appearance in the championship game since joining the conference in 2004.

Returning Heisman trophy winner Jameis Winston is the favorite to win the ACC Player of the Year, receiving 99 of 108 preseason votes.
