Three ACC teams in 'CFB Live' Top 25

5/1/2012

Spring football is all wrapped up, so there's no better time than now to take a peak ahead to what awaits us in the fall.

"College Football Live" released its preseason Top 25 poll for 2012, and three ACC schools make the cut: No. 7 Florida State, No. 18 Clemson and No. 19 Virginia Tech.

Kirk Herbstreit and our team of analysts will be focusing on the strengths and weakness of each top-20 team on the show every day at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Both Heather Dinich and I had votes in this poll. In the interest of avoiding a list of 50 bullet points here and straining your dear eyes, you can check out my ballot at my other place of residence, the Notre Dame blog. Dinich's, meanwhile, is listed below. As you can see, we were in agreement on which ACC teams should be ranked entering the season.
