No, we’re not breaking news on the 2013 Heisman Trophy. The ACC announced on Wednesday that Williams was one of three unanimous selections on the All-ACC first team picked by the league’s 14 head coaches, along with Clemson’s Sammy Watkins and Florida State’s Jameis Winston.
Coaches are not allowed to vote for their own players, so Watkins, Williams and Winston all received 13 first-place votes to finish with 39 points apiece. That’s the most points possible.
Williams and Seminoles QB Winston, the presumptive favorite, will represent the ACC in New York City on Saturday for the Heisman ceremonies.
The Eagles finished the regular season 7-5 (4-4 ACC) and will play in their first bowl game since 2010 when they face the Arizona Wildcats (7-5, 4-5 Pac-12) in the AdvoCare V100 Bowl in Shreveport, La., on Dec. 31 at 12:30 p.m. ET (ESPN).
