Florida State, Miami predicted as ACC division winners

Florida State, Miami predicted as ACC division winners

In fact, Miami has never won their division. Virginia was the only team that did not garner a vote to win the ACC Coastal.

The Seminoles were picked as overall ACC champions on 118 ballots while reigning national champion Clemson received 35 votes. Clemson was next with 37 first-place votes and 1,007 points, while Louisville received nine first-place votes and checked in with 843 total points. The Hurricanes were suffering from injuries and had to reshuffle their offensive line that week.

The Hokies got 40 first-place votes, but that was well behind Miami's 103. Louisville returns Lamar Jackson but lost a ton of talent around him, and Virginia Tech lost its quarterback and two of its top three receiving threats. If this year's media predictions prove correct, it will be a first-ever title game matchup of teams from the Sunshine State and a rematch of an early regular-season showdown. The Seminoles received 117 votes to win the conference.

Iran Sentences American To 10 Years in Prison After Spying Accusations
Tehran, July17 :A USA national has been sentenced in Iran to 10 years in prison on spying charges, Iranian officials have said. Later, Fars News, again citing Mohseni-Ejheie, said he was a citizen of the United States and a country other than Iran .

Louisville quarterback and reigning Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson topped that category by a wide margin with 113. Clemson defensive end Christian Wilkins was third in the voting for that award. Miami Sophomores, linebacker Shaquille Quarterman and wide receiver Ahmmon Richards finished in a three-way tie for seventh with one vote each.

At the ACC Kickoff last week in Charlotte, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney mentioned several times that the lack of questions concerning his current players will help motivate them this season to show they deserve some attention. That ranks 25th in the nation per Phil Steele's annual survey of college football lineups.

Clemson opens its season September 2 against Kent State. Not the least of which being that league officials expected Florida State and Miami to be regular representatives in the the game.
