Louisville picked third in Atlantic Division

The University of Louisville football program was picked to finish third in the ACC's Atlantic Division in its first season in the new conference.

The Cardinals, coming off a win over Miami in the Russell Athletic Bowl, are projected to have a solid, competitive season in their new league. Louisville didn't garner any first place votes in a poll of media members at the 2014 ACC Football Kickoff at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, N.C., but the Cardinals were the popular pick to finish just behind Florida State and Clemson.

From the ACC release:

Florida State was picked as the likely overall ACC winner on 104 of 112 ballots cast. The Seminoles were picked to finish atop the Atlantic Division by 109 voters and amassed 780 total points. Clemson received the remaining three-first-place votes and placed second with 660. ACC newcomer Louisville placed third at 564, followed by Syracuse (368), NC State (326), Boston College (301) and Wake Forest (136).

Miami's 26 first-place votes placed third among Coastal Division teams, but the Hurricanes' 614 total points led overall. Defending division champion Duke received 33 first-place votes and finished with 597 points, followed by Virginia Tech with 571 points and 23 first-place votes. North Carolina was just behind in fourth place with 570 points and 27 first-place votes, followed by Georgia Tech (322 with one first place vote), Pitt (319 with two first-place votes) and Virginia (142).
