The ACC media has spoken on Monday, and while not surprisingly they have Clemson four-peating as conference champion, they did give respect to the Miami Hurricanes.

The Canes were selected overwhelming to repeat and win the Atlantic Division of the conference.

Miami received most of the Atlantic first place votes (122) followed by Virginia Tech (16) and Georgia Tech (8). 2017 was a tremendous turnaround season in Coral Gables, as second year coach Mark Richt led them to a 10-0 start and the berth in the ACC Championship Game-their first in program history.

Unfortunately there season ended badly, after an upset loss to lowly Pitt,  Miami was blown out by Clemson and then later beaten soundly on their home field in the Orange Bowl by Big Ten runner-up, Wisconsin.

Speaking of Clemson on the Coastal Division side, the Tigers took home 145 of the possible 148 first place votes. Florida State did have a single first place vote in the balloting conducted last week.

The Noles last won the ACC Championship in 2014, when QB Jameis Winston completed a perfect regular season and title game with a win over Georgia Tech.
