USA Today Coaches Poll released

The ACC will start 2013 with a top-10 team in the USA Today Coaches Poll, as Clemson, at No. 8, was the league's top team in the new rankings released on Thursday.

No. 12 Florida State was the only other ACC school ranked, but Miami (101), Virginia Tech (65) and North Carolina (19) all received votes. This lineup shouldn't come as any surprise to ACC fans, as this is in line with most preseason predictions. Clemson was chosen by the media to win the ACC at media days, and Miami was picked to win the Coastal Division. If the Canes live up to the hype this year, they should be the next team in the polls.

Here are your ACC coaches who help comprise The USA TODAY Sports Board of Coaches, which is made up of 62 head coaches at FBS schools:

  • Frank Beamer, Virginia Tech

  • David Cutcliffe, Duke

  • Larry Fedora, North Carolina

  • Jimbo Fisher, Florida State
