Hokies and Tigers Expected in Tampa

The 2008 ACC football preseason media poll was released today at ACC media days in Greensboro, Ga. Not surprisingly, Virginia Tech and Clemson are expected to win its respective divisions with the Tigers picked to be ACC champions.

The Hokies and Tigers had the same number of points in the voting, although the Hokies received 58 of 65 first-place votes in their division and the Tigers received 59. Clemson also received 51 of 65 votes to win the ACC.

Since the ACC added BC in 2004 and split into two divisions, the Hokies have been picked to win the Coastal three of four seasons. The lone exception was 2006 when the media pegged Miami to win the division.

This is the first time Florida State has not been picked by the media to win the Atlantic. The Seminoles are picked third, behind Clemson and Wake Forest.
