Clemson and Florida State have dominated ACC football since 2011 with each team claiming a trio of conference titles during that span.

The ACC announced voting results Monday following a poll of 167 media members who attended last week's media days in Charlotte.

In the Atlantic Division, Florida State led the way with 121 first-place votes and 1,108 total points.

Pitt (seven first-place votes) totaled 673 points, followed by North Carolina (four first-place votes) at 606, Duke (four first-place votes) at 473 and Virginia at 219.

NC State (658 total points) was tabbed for a fourth-place Atlantic Division finish, followed by Wake Forest (415), Syracuse (362) and Boston College (283).

To no surprise, reigning Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson is the heavy favorite to win the conference's player of the year award, leading the pack with 113 votes.

FSU was followed in the division by 2-time reigning ACC champion Clemson and Louisville.

Louisville returns 14 starters from last season's 9-4 team that finished as co-champions of the ACC's Atlantic Division with a 7-1 conference record and participated in the Citrus Bowl. The Louisville quarterback averaged 393.4 yards per game of total offense and had 51 touchdowns, which were both single-season records for the ACC.

The next highest finisher for conference player of the year was FSU quarterback Deondre Francois, who earned 23 votes.
