Three ACC Teams Litter The USA Today Pre-Season Coaches Poll

The USA Today Amway Pre-Season Coaches Poll was released on Thursday morning, and three ACC teams (plus Notre Dame) made the list. Florida State ironically is higher than pre-season conference favorite Clemson. The ‘Noles cracked the list at 8, while Clemson is ranked 12th. Georgia Tech sits at number 17 in the nation entering the season, while the kinda-sorta-ACC-football-member Notre Dame enters the season at number 11 in the country.

The ACC also has many teams sitting just outside the ranking in the “receiving votes” category. Virginia Tech leads the way with 70 votes, followed by Louisville with 27 votes a bit further down the list. Miami, Duke, and North Carolina State also are receiving some votes to gain entry into the ranking.
