Another year, another season of uncertainty for Miami Hurricanes football. Could this finally be the year the once-storied team makes it to its first ACC championship game? Reporters who cover the Atlantic Coast Conference don't think so and have picked Miami to finish second in its division.
Seventy-one sports reporters ranked the ACC teams, and only four think the Canes will win the division. They finished at a projected second place with 328 points, behind prospective division champs Virginia Tech. But voters are confident that Miami will stand above division rivals such as North Carolina and Georgia Tech.
Of the voters who chose Miami to win the division, none of them thought the team would win the ACC Championship game. In fact, the vast majority of voters have the Florida State Seminoles beating the Virginia Tech Hokies in the big game.
