Miami, in its second year under head coach Mark Richt, got 103 first-place votes and Virginia Tech, in its second season under head coach Justin Fuente, received 40 first-place votes.

Florida State was picked to win the Atlantic Division-and to become the overall league champion-by a group consisting of 167 media members, while Miami is the early favorite to take home the Coastal Division.

On Monday, the ACC announced the results of a preseason poll from the conference's Kickoff event last week, which ran Thursday and Friday in Charlotte. Defending national champion Clemson followed with 37 first-place votes and 1,007 points while Louisville received nine first-place votes and checked in with 843 total points. UVA hasn't finished better than sixth place in the division since 2011, the program's last bowl season, when the Wahoos finished tied for second. No other Atlantic team received a first-place vote to win the division.

CCI is relatively high when prices are much higher than average, and relatively low when prices are much lower than the average. The RSI, or Relative Strength Index, is a commonly used technical momentum indicator that compares price movement over time.

Following those two were Louisville, N.C. State, Wake Forest, Syracuse and Boston College.

Florida State is the preseason pick to win the Atlantic Coast Conference and reigning Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson of Louisville is the preseason player of the year. 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.

Georgia Tech opens the season September 4 against Tennessee in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
