The reigning national champions in football are the favorites to win the Atlantic Coast Conference again in 2014.

Florida State was picked as the likely conference champion by members of the media in attendance Monday at the 2014 ACC Kickoff in Greensboro, N.C.

The Seminoles received 104 first-place votes among 112 ballots (with four voters abstaining).

FSU quarterback Jameis Winston, who led the Seminoles to an undefeated season and their third national championship as a redshirt freshman in 2013, was also chosen to repeat as ACC player of the year. He won the award last year.

The Heisman Trophy winner received 99 total votes.

Miami was also picked to win the Coastal Division and meet FSU in the ACC Championship game for the first time.

The Hurricanes only had 26 first-place votes (third-most behind Duke's 33 and North Carolina's 27), but their 614 total points led overall.

FSU has won 14 ACC championships in 23 seasons, tying Clemson for most all-time. Miami has never won the ACC since joining the league in 2004.
