Florida State is predicted to break a 2-year hiatus and win its first ACC title since 2017. Behind Miami in the Coastal were Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh, North Carolina, Duke and Virginia.

Florida State was the overwhelming pick to win the ACC championship this season, receiving 117 votes. Defending division champion Virginia Tech followed with 40 first-place votes and 932 points.

Reigning Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson was tabbed the Atlantic Coast Conference preseason player of the year and Louisville was picked to finish third in the conference's Atlantic Division, the league announced Monday. No other Atlantic team received a first-place vote to win the division. He was chosen to repeat after a record-setting campaign in which he averaged 393.4 yards per game of total offense and accounted for 51 touchdowns, both ACC single-season records.

A rising junior from Pompano Beach, Fla., Jackson - the youngest player to win the Heisman Trophy - also was named the 2016 national college football player of the year by the Maxwell Award, Walter Camp, the Sporting News, and CBS Sports.

Defensive tackle Nazair Jones chose to forego his final year of eligibility, and was taken in the third round of the NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks.

When it came to individuals, FSU quarterback Deondre Francois received the second most votes to win ACC Player of the Year with 23.
