Miami Football Picked to Win ACC Coastal


If the media's correct, Virginia Tech will be looking up at Miami in the Coastal Division by the end of the season. Virginia Tech, which won the Coastal last season, is the second-place pick. After back-to-back ACC championships and back-to-back appearances in the national title game, Clemson has proven it is the class of the ACC and has a mental edge over the rest of the conference. The team rebounded from a rough start to win its final three games, including a 36-30 win over Maryland in the Quick Lane Bowl, but still finished with a 2-6 record against conference foes. The Hurricanes were suffering from injuries and had to reshuffle their offensive line that week. Defending division champion Virginia Tech followed with 40 first-place votes and 932 points.
