GREENSBORO, N.C. - Florida State commanded the voting as expected for preseason accolades handed out by the assembled media at the ACC Football Kickoff Monday.

FSU garnered 104 out of 108 votes to win the ACC Championship Game; Clemson and Virginia Tech each grabbed a pair to keep the Seminoles from being the unanimous pick.

This was the most one-sided selection since the ACC began tabulating ballots in 2007; Virginia Tech over FSU on 69 of 76 ballots in 2009 was previously the most dominant decision. However, Georgia Tech ended up beating Clemson in the league title game that year.

In the ACC Atlantic Division, Florida State was named the winner on 109 of 112 ballots; Clemson had the other three. Last year's tally was a near polar opposite, when Clemson captured 95 first-place votes and eventual champ FSU had just 15.

Miami garnered the most collective votes in the Coastal Division, though its 26 first-place nods were third place behind Duke's 33 and North Carolina's 27. This is the first year since 2006 FSU and Miami have been predicted to face off in the ACC Championship Game.

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was overwhelmingly named the ACC Preseason Player of the Year, a distinction held last year by Clemson's Tajh Boyd. Winston got 99 of 108 votes; Clemson defensive end Vic Beasley had six votes, while three other skill players were each picked once.

The ACC media has correctly picked the champion or co-champion in 23 out of 38 years of voting. Florida State has previously been tabbed the preseason favorite 16 times; the Seminoles won 11 championships outright, tied twice, and failed to take the title three times, most recently in 2011 when Clemson defeated Virginia Tech in Charlotte.
